Om boka

Falling somewhere between childhood and adulthood, 'Youth' is a key period of transition. It can be difficult to define and make sense of this period in one's life.

However it is categorised, young people face a number of challenges and issues growing up in today's world. From the pressures created by social media to the increasing precarity of employment, the major social, cultural and economic developments of our time are each impacting this period of the lifecourse in myriad ways. Youth Sociology helps readers to understand how such changes factor into the experience of being young today, and illuminates the realities of the world in which young people live.

Embedding perspectives and insights from a wide range of disciplines beyond sociology, this authoritative new textbook will be incredibly useful for all students of youth.

Robert MacDonald, University of Huddersfield, UK

«This is a text that is informed by, and wants to develop in its readers, a sociological imagination about the challenges and opportunities that structure young people’s experiences in the early 21st century. The authors present a wide-ranging, historical overview of the key characteristics of the debates about young people, their interests, cultures, behaviours, engagements with education and work, fashion, culture and well-being, and provoke their readers to think critically, sociologically, about these youth issues.»

Peter Kelly, RMIT University, Australia

«This highly accessible volume is a comprehensive tour of sociological perspectives on youth. It is an invaluable resource for lecturers of youth related courses. The book not only provides informative reading for students of sociology and applied social sciences, but also suggests new ways to think.»

Sanna Aaltonen, University of Eastern Finland
