This is the last book in a series of three dealing with youth work practice, organization and the social and economic position experienced by young people. One of the central concerns in this book has been to throw some light on why certain sites of inequality and oppression, such as those surrounding class, still lack sustained critical practice. It aims to concentrate on an examination of the differences in life chances and experiences encountered. Many of the inequalities that are discussed in this book are reproduced with the help of youth workers and youth organizations. At the same time, with the growth of black political organizations, the re-emergence of the women's movement, the development of lesbian and gay groups and the enhancement of politics around disability, alternative forms of practice have entered the arena. They demonstrate that it is still possible to address questions of inequality and exploitation in day-to-day practice, even though successive governments have sought to constrain and marginalize such work.
