Sexual practices and drug use among the young are examined in this book, calling into question mainstream assumptions about ‘adolescence’.
Bringing together a range of cross-cultural and cross-national contributions, the book reveals both similarities and important differences that mark sexuality and drug use among young in different social and cultural settings. In doing so, it allows the reader to build up a clearer understanding of the challenges that must be faced in public health and education if we are to develop programs and interventions that really serve the needs of young people.

The book will be of interest to professionals working with young people and is suitable for a wide range of multidisciplinary courses covering areas such as human sexuality, sex education, public health and social work.

Review:

'The book busts some myths and provides timely reinforcement of truths that world governments would rather avoid. It offers some ways forward, and reminds those of us who are too ready to sideline young people that they are fellow citizens.' - Times Educational Supplement

'An interesting book that highlights different cultural and national experiences of youth that illustrate the richness, vulnerability and complexity of adolescence. Recommended reading for anyone who works with young people and wants to acquire a more global appreciation of the broader cultural context of youth' - Child and Family Social Work

'A useful starting point to locate evidence and research on a whole range of health issues and themes.' - Youth and Policy
