Young people in risk society Edited by Mark Cieslik and Gary Pollock

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is a hard back and is in fair condition.

"Drawing on the latest empirical research and theoretical writings, this book examines how concepts such as risk society and individualization may be used in the field of youth studies. Featuring an in-depth study of the key traditions within youth studies, the book charts how research into transitions and cultures have been reshaped by recent debates around risk, detraditionalization and post-modernity. The book explores young peoples' identities and youth cultures, and the multiplicity of ways in which risk can be understood and influence youth policy agendas in the future. - - Authoritative and challenging, the book features topics such as employment, sexuality and household formation as well as theoretical critiques of the concept of risk itself. It will be thought-provoking and informative reading for researchers, practitioners and academics alike."
