Teen Life in Europe (Teen Life around the World Series)

Overview

Teens in European countries have a number of similarities. But, because Europe consists of such a diverse group of countries, differences do exist.

Overview

Teens in European countries have a number of similarities. But, because Europe consists of such a diverse group of countries, differences do exist. These differences can be attributed to a variety of economies, geographies, and politics. American teens will find a special interest in the region, as it is the region in the world most similar to their own culture.

Each chapter covers a country in the region, and is written by a native of that country. The 12 countries profiled are Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Malta, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey.

VOYA
One of the five-volume Teen Life Around the World reference series, this title examines teen life in twelve European countries (all Western European countries except Turkey), beginning with an overview of each and then discussing a typical day, family life, school, social life, and religion of teens. In each chapter, country specialists attempt to paint a broad picture of teen life including details such as driving age, dating customs, and discretionary spending. Chapters end with a collection of Web sites, fiction and nonfiction titles, and other resources for research and interest. Especially nice are the links on finding pen pals from each country. This book is a good resource for high schools with country reports and colleges and universities. Although the prose format could have been lightened with fact boxes and bulleting, detailed information abounds, not only about European teens, but also about general European culture. Because each chapter has its own author, the writing varies, but the dearth of material on this subject as well as its clear structure and useful information makes it a set for consideration. Purchase this volume and the others on Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East where use will balance the "reference book" price. For an affordable, high interest choice, try Girl 13 (Hylas Publishing, 2005), a question-and-answer book starring teenage girls from around the world. 2005, Greenwood, 281p.; Index. Photos. Source Notes. Further Reading., PLB $55.. Ages 15 to Adult.
