Now in its third edition, Youth and Society remains the most comprehensive and up-to-date textbook on the sociology of youth. Led by an expert author team, the book takes a holistic approach to the concept of youth and provides an accessible yet authoritative overview of the field's key debates, research and theories. This new edition includes a new part, covering contemporary and emerging youth issues, and the thorough, multidisciplinary content is supported by the latest research. This title will also be available as an e-book in December 2012.
