It had some very useful readings.
The module I coordinated last academic year was a relatively introductory course on the study of childhood, so a focus on youth was not appropriate at that stage. However, in re-designing the course, I may adopt the book as recommended reading for those students wishing to focus on the period of youth more specifically within childhood for their assignments.
This is a good starting point for any student wishing to progress into youth studies or youth work. It lays out the key concepts in a very user friendly way and provides students with basis to extend their knowledge into youth culture and sociological perspectives of youth.
