Reviews

'Bringing together an impressive range of scholars and original research from around the world, Mediated Youth Cultures offers an invaluable resource for those studying how young people are integrating digital communications into their cultural lives, from the role of the internet in the development and playing out of young identities, to the significance of online communication as a tool for different forms of cultural consumption, creativity and resistance. Bennett and Robards have assembled a diverse and complementary set of contributions that will surely be essential reading for students of youth and youth cultures, and will help set future research agendas in this crucial and fast-changing area.' - Paul Hodkinson, Reader in Sociology, University of Surrey, UK
