"Woodman and Wyn have produced a text that offers conceptual clarity and real depth on debates in youth studies. The authors skilfully guide us through the main sociological theories on young people and furnish us with sophisticated critiques from which to rethink youth and generation in the contemporary moment." - Professor Anoop Nayak, Newcastle University The promise of youth studies is not in simply showing that class, gender and race continue to influence life chances, but to show how they shape young lives today. Dan Woodman and Johanna Wyn argue that understanding new forms of inequality in a context of increasing social change is a central challenge for youth researchers. Youth and Generation sets an agenda for youth studies building on the concepts of ‘social generation’ and ‘individualisation’ to suggest a framework for thinking about change and inequality in young lives in the emerging Asian Century.

Education faces its own credibility crunch as overschooling combines with undereducation to leave young people overqualified and underemployed. This book reveals what has gone wrong in schools, colleges and universities and how this relates to the changing relationship between young people, educational qualifications and employment in the early 21st century. Combining their experience across sectors, the authors present a comprehensive review of education and training from primary to postgraduate schools. Meeting the crisis in policy and theory, they suggest new pedagogical principles are needed to combine research with teaching to produce as well as reproduce knowledge through application, creation, experiment, scholarship and debate. This new pedagogy would both reclaim the expertise of teachers and enable students to find purpose in what they study. They advocate a new educational politics bringing together students and teachers in new conceptions of education and democracy as the only opportunity to break the impasse in education at all levels.

A new cohort of Muslim youth has arisen since the attacks of 9/11, facilitated by the proliferation of recent communication technologies and the Internet. By focusing on these young people as a heterogeneous global cohort, the contributors to this volume—who draw from a variety of disciplines—show how the study of Muslim youth at this particular historical juncture is relevant to thinking about the anthropology of youth, the anthropology of Islamic and Muslim societies, and the post-9/11 world more generally. These scholars focus on young Muslims in a variety of settings in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and North America and explore the distinct pastimes and performances, processes of civic engagement and political action, entrepreneurial and consumption practices, forms of self-fashioning, and aspirations and struggles in which they engage as they seek to understand their place and make their way in a transformed world.

Empowering the Next Generation: A "How To" Guide to Starting a Youth Leadership Program was written to assist individuals, agencies, organizations, schools, churches, and cities in starting a youth leadership program. It is a comprehensive guide that is easy to read; it will help lead you in the right direction toward starting a successful program. It includes several helpful resources such as a sample youth leadership program curriculum, contact information from every state on issues related to drug and alcohol prevention, a complete State Municipal League Guide, and 101 website resources for youth and community-related grants. As a bonus, Mayor Carl Camon has included instructions for City Life Scenarios, which he wrote and has used in his successful youth program in Ray City, Georgia. The scenarios will give the youth an opportunity to experience what it is like to literally assume the role of various city officials for a day. Empowering the Next Generation also includes an enlightening and thought-provoking narrative entitled Empowering Our Youth on the state of education in America. Every community, city, state, and national youth organization should make this book a part of their resource library.

Youth Culture and the Generation Gap

Youth Culture and the Generation Gap

The book compares the competing influences of peers and parents, discusses homeless migrants, hippies, punks and rockers, and considers sex, language, cliques, gangs and reference groups.

The youth culture has taken over in the Western world, and the United States is its champion. Has this cultural emphasis widened the generation gap, or is it just a natural by-product of the generational differences that exist in all societies? Is the generation gap such a problem as the media makes it out to be? Gerhard Falk discusses the dramatic ways that young people differentiate themselves from the parent generation as they seek to overcome the identity problem all adolescents face. He explores the development of a youth culture in the US, and its manifestations in daily life from recreation and music to dress codes, language, sex, and status games and cliques, gangs and reference groups. The book compares the competing influences of parents and peers, from homeless migrants and hippies, punks and rockers to the part-time workers earning money for family reasons or to revel in expensive amusements and status symbols. New media and entertainment forms confront younger and younger children with drugs, sex and other adult concerns in high school, middle school and even in the lower grades. This book reflects on changes in the concept of adolescence over the centuries and introduces the reader to aspects of the youth culture seldom known to those who do not live it. While a segment of our youth are the direct and indirect victims of divorce, poverty, homelessness and other forms of social instability, studies show that many young Americans maintain the values of their parents despite the much-touted generation gap. The authors contend that, in fact, most of today's youngsters have a great deal of sympathy for their parents and share their values. * Dr. Gerhard Falk is professor ofsociology at State University College at Buffalo, NY. He is the author of fourteen books including most recently Football and American Identity and Grandparents, The Supporting Generation with Ursula Falk. He is a recipient of the SUCB President's Award for Excellence in Research and the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching. Dr. Ursula Falk is a psychotherapist in private practice.

As the analytical concept of youth gained importance, and was generally accepted as a period with its own cultural values and norms, social scientists began to analyze how social change was linked to youth. In the Middle East, a new concept of youth already began to find its way into the region in the late 19th century, and played a role in the anti-colonialist struggle. The same concept still plays a leading role today in the way young people act in relation to traditional values, political systems, and the West. In the Arab world in general, some 50% of the total population is 18 years of age or below, which means that youth as a social group is of growing importance in the area. This also means that for decades to come Middle Eastern governments will be challenged as their young citizens demand work, a place to live, and access to enjoyable and challenging activities for the ever-expanding leisure time embedded in a modern way of life. Drawing on extensive research, which covers a wide geographical area, this volume includes, among others, articles on: Youth, History and Change in the Modern Arab World; The Discovery of Adolescence in the Middle East; Discovering the Other: Arab/Jewish Youth Encounters in Arab Films; Youth, Moral and Islamism: Spending Leisure Time with Hamas in Palestine; The Construction of Youth in Public Discourse in Turkey: A Generational Approach; and, Youth Culture and Official State Discourse in Iran. Youth and Youth Cultures in the Contemporary Middle East is a comprehensive work which describes and analyzes the forms of youth culture presently being exposed throughout the contemporary Middle East. It will appeal not only to scholars, but also to those with a general interest in Middle Eastern culture.
