There is now almost 100 years of rich literature relating to youth culture. This major work brings together the best of this literature, from 'benchmark' essays to contemporary developments, in order to critically evaluate and assess the body of academic work. The perspective is truly global, with the selected articles addressing cultures in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Australasia and the Middle East. The articles are organised into four thematic volumes:
Volume 1: Histories of Youth Culture
Volume 2: Subcultures and Style
Volume 3: Youth, Music and Media
Volume 4: Global Youth Culture
This is a highly valuable reference collection for researchers in all fields of youth culture including sociology, media and cultural studies and social anthropology.
