Youth marginality in Britain offers a new perspective on social justice for young people. It explores different forms of social marginalisation within media, culture and society, focusing on how young people experience social discrimination at a personal and collective level.
Showcasing contemporary research on multiple youth deprivation of personal isolation, social hardship, gender and ethnic discrimination and social stigma, it considers the intersection of race, gender, class, asylum seeker status and care leavers in Britain to highlight both change and continuity within young people's social and cultural identities. With a foreword from Robert MacDonald, this timely contribution to debates concerning youth austerity in Britain is suitable for students across youth studies, sociology, education, criminology, youth work and social policy. 3 Halftones, black and white; 10 Tables, black and white
