Description:
'The series Youth: Perspectives and Practice provides a distinctive and rare combination of expert commentary, new research, original theorising and critical reflection on how we should understand youth and work with young people. These books deserve a wide readership ! the way they are written and organised will make them particularly appealing to students' - Professor Robert MacDonald, University of Teesside Inventing Adulthoods offers a ground-breaking new perspective on young peoples' 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, cultures of violence and well-being. It also considers the significance of those things that mean most to young people themselves: mobility, home, belonging, intimacy and social life.
The book is written in a lively and engaging style and, through case studies and interviews, examines: ' the impact that social factors such as gender, class, sexuality, religion, disability and family have on life opportunities; and ' connections between young people's lives, social policy frameworks and practice applications.
