  • Young Citizens in the Digital Ageby Brian D. Loader

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 55.95

    A social anxiety currently pervades the political classes of the western world, arising from the perception that young people have become disaffected with liberal democratic politics. Voter turnout among 18-25 year olds continues to be lower than other age groups and they are less likely to join political parties. This is not, however, proof that... more...

  • On the Frontier of Adulthoodby Richard A. Settersten Jr.; Frank F. Furstenberg; Rubén G. Rumbaut

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 30.00

    On the Frontier of Adulthood reveals a startling new fact: adulthood no longer begins when adolescence ends. A lengthy period before adulthood, often spanning the twenties and even extending into the thirties, is now devoted to further education, job exploration, experimentation in romantic relationships, and personal development. Pathways into... more...

  • On Your Own without a Netby D. Wayne Osgood; E. Michael Foster; Constance Flanagan; Gretchen R. Ruth

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 25.00

    In the decade after high school, young people continue to rely on their families in many ways-sometimes for financial support, sometimes for help with childcare, and sometimes for continued shelter. But what about those young people who confront special difficulties during this period, many of whom can count on little help from their families? ... more...

  • Wannabes, Goths, and Christiansby Amy C. Wilkins

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 25.00

    On college campuses and in high school halls, being white means being boring. Since whiteness is the mainstream, white kids lack a cultural identity that’s exotic or worth flaunting. To remedy this, countless white youths across the country are now joining more outré subcultures like the Black- and Puerto Rican–dominated hip-hop... more...

  • The Pirate's Dilemmaby Matt Mason

    Free Press 2008; US$ 18.99

    It started with punk. Hip-hop, rave, graffiti, and gaming took it to another level, and now modern technology has made the ideas and innovations of youth culture increasingly intimate and increasingly global at the same time. In The Pirate's Dilemma , VICE magazine's Matt Mason -- poised to become the Malcolm Gladwell of the iPod Generation... more...

  • Young, Free and Single?by Dr Sue Heath; Dr Elizabeth Cleaver

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 115.00

    In the context of the ongoing destandardization of young people's lives, this book explores changing patterns of household formation amongst contemporary 20-somethings and the implications of these changes for the ways in which they relate to friends, parents and partners. The book points to the growing polarization between the experiences of graduates... more...

  • Young People and Politics in the UKby David Marsh; Dr Therese O'Toole; Su Jones

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 120.00

    This book examines how young people understand and live politics, using innovative research methods. It treats age, class, gender and ethnicity as political 'lived experiences'. It concludes that young people are alienated, rather than apathetic, and that their interests and concerns are rarely addressed within mainstream political institutions. more...
