'This timely book provides a very welcome global focus to youth research ... Readers will particularly value the range of perspectives that form this collection.'  - Andy Furlong, University of Glasgow, UK

A major new resource book for academics and students of youth studies, Contemporary Youth Research offers a rare comparative review of a field that is often focused on the local or national situation. Drawing together authors from across the world, this work combines assessments of the theory, methodology and practice of youth research and the impact of globalization on this field of study.
