Advanced Introduction to Youth Studies

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The Advanced Introduction to Youth Studies analyses the historical development of the sociology of youth in the context of changing population demographics. Howard Williamson and James Côté explore competing paradigms underlying current understanding of youth with reference to key philosophical, theoretical and methodological debates.

Young people’s transitions to adulthood and youth cultural behaviour are then explored. The authors conclude with a consideration of youth policies and how, in the future, these may be better informed by sociological research.
