'Inventing Adulthoods' offers a groundbreaking new perspective on young people's experiences of growing up at the turn of the 21st century, arguing that a biographical approach is vital to understanding the holistic and dynamic character of their lives. Based on a study of a diverse group of young people over a 10 year period, the book explores high profile policy issues - education, employment, drugs, violence and well-being. It also considers the significance of things that mean the most to young people themselves: mobility, home, belonging, intimacy and social life.
