With Youth and generation Dan Woodman and Johanna Wyn exemplify that the capacity to clearly explain, use and argue complex ideas requires a foundation of sophisticated expertise. Grounded in their comprehensive understandings of sociology generally, and youth studies in particular, Woodman and Wyn draw on the work of eminent as well as lesser-known, and local as well as international, scholars for a rich and rigorous analysis. In the process they offer an important overview of theoretical traditions for youth research. The book benefits from the authors’ persistent commitment to empirical and theoretical work focused on young people’s everyday lives, since the early 1990s by Wyn and early 2000s by Woodman. The result is a cumulative body of work that offers deep understandings that are relevant across the broad field of youth studies, and which underpin the core arguments of this book.
