about this item

Youthful Solidarities brings new insights to the study of social movements and young people’s lives, exploring how the practices of growing up are entangled with the practices young people’s activism and building solidarity. The book is based on interviews with ninety former participants in the Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy in London (1986 –1990) and original archival research. The book questions contemporary debates surrounding protecting ‘vulnerable’ young people and panics about ‘radicalised youth’. It theorizes solidarity and ‘growing up’ as a social practice to provide a theoretically-informed, argument-led analysis of how youthful activists learnt to practice solidarity and the long-term impact on their subsequent lives.
