about this item

Widespread youth unemployment is rapidly becoming a major—and seemingly endemic—problem around the world. And, increasingly, young people themselves are being blamed, their nonparticipation in the workforce criminalized. Ross Fergusson here mounts a powerful critique of current approaches to youth unemployment, reexamining its causes and consequences from a wide range of perspectives and revealing the structural and cultural problems that underlie it. It will be essential for anyone working with or trying to address the problems of youth today.
