Youth Culture across a broad range of contexts. The matters explored are not only critical in terms of being fundamental and emerging problems in Youth Culture but they are also significant in that they present ideologies, scenarios, and seminal principals of individuals lives in frameworks which are non traditional, rebellious and alternative. The chapters presented deal with subject matter that challenge ideas within theories, methodologies and lifestyles that are confrontational, postmodern in perspective and designed to question the comfortable research zones of many traditional academics working in the sociology area.This book brings together leading academics many of whom have been cross-examining traditional views about youth culture for some time. Their work is thought provoking, innovative, entertaining and at the cutting edge of contemporary sociology.This book is designed for both undergraduate and graduate programs and will also be accessible for parents and community members who work with youth and their families as it will provide a context for their experiences. The book will consider issues that are fundamental and of interest to educators. It will introduce new theoretical perspectives and link it to culture so that complex ideas are made accessible. In this way it will provide new lenses for considering fundamental issues which have hitherto gone un-noticed in society.
