This concise yet thorough introduction to the sociological study of young people exposes students to the historical and mythic foundations of the discipline before looking at the cultural and educational aspects of youth today. With an exploration of methodology and sociological theories, along with interdisciplinary research evidence, the text wards off the stereotype of the 'stormy youth' while providing context and analytical commentary on the most critical and interesting issues in the field. Unique in its approach and with the most up-to-date research and analysis available, Approaching Youth Studies offers a distinctly Canadian perspective on the study of youth.

[ Approaching Youth Studies] features a helpful conceptual model of cultural nesting which highlights the complex locations and interactions of youth across institutional settings. It then presents how to negotiate school settings utilizing this model. It also outlines the epistemological fallacy of youth which provides students with a way of understanding the prevalence of individualist youth responses to modernist macro social issues as well as providing a helpful discussion on youth research that empowers."
