Abstract

By drawing on recent research and the insights of young people the book provides a clear and comprehensive overview of youth in late modernity.

" Part 1 Perspectives presents three different ways of conceptualising and understanding youth.

" Part 2 Identities considers issues of self and identity.

" Part 3 Practices explores the everyday practices that give shape to young people's lives.


The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach and presents complex issues in an accessible and interactive way. It will be essential reading for students on courses in youth work, youth studies, education, social work and social policy, and for professionals working with young people in a wide range of settings.
