About this book

Challenging dominant discourses in neoliberal marketized societies about working with disconnected young people, this book argues that alternative, radical approaches to formal and informal education are necessary to challenge repressive practices, and to help build a more equal, socially-just society.

Reviews

"This text is easy to read and brings together diverse perspectives on youth work, related work with young people, and histories of young people' involvement in social action. The authors draw out the relevance of each account to contemporary events, and future possibilities. It is rare to find a text written by multiple authors that maintains a common thread, but still enables each author to find their own voice." - Trudi Cooper, Edith Cowan University, Australia
