This book is an interesting read - well laid out easy to read - but not suitable for Education students. Will pass on to colleagues.

Excellent book especially for Youth Studies. I particularly found the active involvement of young people chapter and specifically the participation section very appropriate. Very appropriate course reader for us.

This text covers all bases for our students studying in the field of youth and community work. It is a text that can be utilised for the whole module and students have found it a useful text offering a good foundation and introduction to informed, inclusive decision making.

A great book, well laid out with a cohesive flow of relevant information. Each chapter can be read independently as a self contained reader on specific issues. Examples given are practice specific and therefor meaningful to students.
