A unique collection of qualitative and ethnographic studies of differing groups of young people. It examines inequality in all its complexity in the lived experience of youth and shows the continued pervasive influence of class and gender. The groups studied range from young women in private education to youth training "lads" and gives vivid and insightful accounts of their social existence. Their diverse experiences are explored in the context of family, education, training, work and politics. The contributors consider for example, family and educational processes, social divisions and control, identities and opportunities, "enterprise" careers and cultural resistance in the context of late/post modern transitions. "Youth and Inequality" is aimed particularly at students and researchers in the social sciences, education and cultural studies and should also be of interest to all those professionally engaged with young people.
