Generation Y (Millennials), born in the 1980s and 1990s, came of age during a period of unprecedented accelerated economic growth. These young secular women and men were shaped by a society that was fast becoming more self-critical and cynical, conflictual, entrepreneurial, consumer and media-oriented, individualistic and globalized. They are the self-centered children of the digital age, raised as princes and princesses, shielded by their teachers and parents’ words of praise and affirmation. What is the cultural DNA of today’s youth? Based on extensive research this book provides answers to these key questions. Although it concentrates on Israeli society, most of the generational traits and their sociological interpretations are applicable all over the western world.
