Reviews

"This is a very useful and important book. It properly gets to grips with some of the most critical challenges facing young people in the light of the recent economic crisis. Rather than concentrating only on issues of employment the book takes a more holistic approach to understanding young lives and additionally locates this insightful and careful analysis within a consideration of longer term trends in youth transitions. A great achievement and essential reading for anyone interested in youth transitions in Europe both in the current economic context and beyond it." - Tracy Shildrick, University of Leeds, UK

"This highly readable and well-structured volume reviews and contrasts a range of policies affecting young people within and across European countries. The editors ought to be congratulated for successfully connecting research on 'youth transitions' with comparative social policy analysis." - Jochen Clasen, University of Edinburgh, UK

"The implications for young people entering the new economy are far-reaching and this book provides a rich illustration of the impact of precarity on young people across Europe, highlighting the inadequacies of policy in States that have abdicated responsibility for providing equally for all of their citizens." - Andy Furlong, University of Glasgow, UK
