Building on the strengths of the highly respected first edition, Youth and Society provides a comprehensive overview of the key issues, research, and theoretical developments in the sociology of youth. A new part, "Theorizing Youth", introduces the many and sometimes conflicting conceptualizations of youth and key theories. Other new chapters explore issues of youth and technology. Enhanced pedagogical features include highlight boxes, additional readings, and expanded chapter exercises, to make the text even more reader friendly.
