Reviews

'This is an interesting, well structured book that draws upon a wide range of literature. The book examines key issues relating to our understanding of the changing nature of young people's transitions from education to work from an international comparative perspective...[it] is particularly valuable for the diversity afforded by the international scope and for the multiplicity of young people's experiences and contexts represented.' - British Educational Research Journal
