Cool places. Geographies of Youth Cultures

£9.99

Product description

Routledge, Independence, Kentucky, U.S.A., 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good +. 1st American. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Music, drugs, clubbing and travel--this is the popular image of what it means to be young. However young people's lives are also bound up with the nitty-gritty everyday realities of home, school and work and are circumscribed by globalizing forces of the economy and processes of marginalization and exclusion.

Cool Places explores the contrasting experiences of contemporary youth, exploring such topics as representation and resistance in young people's lives by drawing on techno music and ecstasy, clubbing, global backpacking and employment seeking.

Cool Places draws on examples from Europe, UK, Scandinavia, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand to introduce the ideas of culture and space - identity politics, gender, race, class, disability - through a context directly relevant to lived experience: youth cultures. Divided into four sections covering representation, scale, resistance and place (home, school, street, shop, work, club), the authors introduce theoretical concepts of the geographies of youth, around engaging themes and first-person vignettes. This edited collection draws together the latest thinking within social, cultural and feminist studies to focus upon the complexities of youth cultures and their spatial representations and interactions.
