Text is clean. Cover shows light shelfwear. Date stamp on front free endpaper. Text in English. Includes bibliographical references. ; FROM BACK COVER: Youth Identities concentrates on those constructions and (self-) representations of 'the teenageer' which dominate crucial areas of contemporary British culture; in consumption and advertising, in sexual behaviour and pop music, in drama, film and the novel. A historical perspective, looking back to the beginnings of youth culture in post-war Britain, is continually present. The nine articles, inspired by a variety of interdisciplinary approaches, are complimented by a number of informal statements by British writers and artists. These committed and provocative statements, written from different generational standpoints, deal with the beliefs, the politics, the gender identities and the personal relationships of the young, and thus convey an immediate impression of a situation which is very much in flux. ; Anglistik & Englischunterricht; Vol. 63; 205 pages
