This article explores paradoxical elements in the relationship between youth and society. It argues that researchers need to take account of both the distinctive circumstances of the post-1970 generation and the new approaches they are developing to make a life. It argues that questions about how social structures and social divisions affect young people's life patterns need to recognize the ways in which young people themselves are responding to new realities.
