Summary
Politicians, the mass media and moral crusaders have tended to give us a one-sided view of youth as violent scum or mindless jobs; a definite problem category. This book offers a much-needed alternative viewpoint to the law-and-order lobby which treats the youth question as a dreadful pest to be exterminated or caged in. The contributors describe the real conditions of life for working-class youth; how they make sense of the world; and how we can understand their perspective
