This work looks at the momentous changes that have occurred in the nature of youth employment in recent years. Examining the range of young people's experience of employment and unemployment, the author highlights the importance of class, gender, ethnic divisions, and geography in explaining
these changes. He assesses the huge impact of educational changes on the patterns of youth employment, and compares the British experience with the rest of Europe. This book will be an invaluable introduction and reference work for students of sociology, human geography, and economics.
