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
