African-American youth: their social and economic status in the United States
An in-depth analysis of the contexts of Black youth socialization with emphasis on the intragroup variations in the circumstances, behavior, and experiences of those youth. Taylor and his contributors present a balanced portrait of the majority of Black youth who stay in school, avoid drugs and pregnancy, are employed, and are not involved in crime despite social and economic disadvantages, alongside those unfortunates who are enmeshed in the crucible of social problems. Authored by some of the best African-American researchers in the United States, this volume focuses on the multiple ecologies of Black youth development from school through employment and marriage.
