An anthology of contributions from eleven renowned specialists in the field who deal with topics that effect Arab youth in the Middle East the most, such as demographic growth, rising unemployment, and the difficult prospects of their future. Apart from studies on violence and youth in the Algerian civil war, the book offers new insights into generational conflicts and attempts by contemporary youth to overcome their alienation by creating their own eclectic cultural solutions to the problems of tradition and modernity. The book is based on the latest research and opinion surveys held in different Arab countries.
