Summary

Originally published in 1990, Youth in Transition addresses the issue of large-scale policy intervention, related to problems of employment in Britain’s youth. The book reflects the changes within sociology from studying youth as self-contained instigators of change, to examining the role they have come to play as the target of official, rather than popular or media attention. Changes in youth experience are affecting family relations and dependence or creating homelessness, regional economic disparities, demographic changes and training and employment opportunities, present a new model of youth and re-define its status. The book brings together original work in the field of youth and youth policy in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
