This book provides a timely reappraisal of youth cultures in contemporary times. From the Birmingham School to the youthscapes of South Korea, this unique collection explores the impact of globalisation and new technologies on youth cultures in contrasting geographic locations. Drawing on international examples of youth cultural formations in the UK, US, Russia, Spain, South Korea and India, the book profiles the best of new research in youth studies written by leading scholars in the field. Acknowledging the past to explore the present, the book is a landmark publication in the rich history of research on the expressive cultures of young people, reframing ‘resistance’ and ‘ritual’ to offer fresh insights into the meaning and significance of youth cultures on a global stage.
