About this title


Anthropology - the study of humankind - has dealt mostly with men, increasingly with women, to some degree with children and old people, but very little with youth. The analysis of the creation of youth culture is a long neglected topic across the social sciences and yet is fundamental to our understanding of society. This work aims to broaden the scope for analyzing young people's behaviour by moving away from notions of resistance and deviance and offering instead a range of ethnographically-based studies of different kinds of youth in varied national contexts. Covering countries as varied as Nepal, Canada, the Solomon Islands and Algeria, it addresses current issues relating to globalization in third world cities, ethnic diversity in European cities and consumption practices. By challenging the limitation of previous youth research and acknowledging children as young adults as agents to be respected rather than objectified, this book is intended to be of interest to students in anthropology, sociology, education, psychology and cultural studies.


". . . a very welcome addition to the anthropological literature on youth . . . The authors view their subjects with sympathy and understanding and emphasize their agency and creativity in the construction of their cultures and selves. . . . an invaluable source of information on youth in a framework that represents recent thinking about culture and "writing culture"." -- American Anthropologist

"The readers interested in a reflection on modern cultures, the specialists on research on the young, the therapists hoping to freshen their approach, all will find in this collection of essays a rich source of inspiration ." -- The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
