About this book

This book explores the transformation of youth and urban culture in neoliberal Britain. Focusing on the reconfiguration of urban culture in relation to race, marginalization and youth politics, James examines the shifting formations of memory, territory, cultural performance and politics.

Reviews

“The book considers memory, territory and cultural practice, thinking through how the politics of class and race, alongside the lived experience of young people in the area, are being reconfigured by technology. … The book demonstrates the importance of ethnographic research, both to how we understand and do politics, and to how we understand the contemporary city. It will be of interested to any scholar of urban studies, as well as those working on youth, race and class.” (Dave O’Brien, New Books network, newbooksnetwork.com, May, 2016)


'In this important book, Malcolm James offers us a richly drawn account of contemporary youth identities and cultures in superdiverse urban spaces. Based on three years ethnography in East London, his provocative analysis places emergent youth expression and cultural politics in a broader context of historical marginality, social inequality and ethnic diversification. The book provides a compelling portrait of the fusions and fissures of contemporary urban multicultures and political agency amongst a group most often overlooked, both by the academy and wider society. James' work is a compassionate and powerful exploration of these hidden lives.'-Claire Alexander, University of Manchester, UK
