Youth Cultures offers a comprehensive outline of youth cultural studies in the twenty-first century, with reference to a range of new research case studies. Featuring both well known and emerging scholars from the UK, the US and mainland Europe, the book addresses core theoretical and methodological developments before going on to examine key substantive themes in the study of young people's identities and lifestyles. These include questions of commerce, power and politics, issues of gender and ethnicity, uses of place and space and impacts of new media and communications. Simultaneously offering an accessible introduction and a range of new contributions to the subject area, Youth Cultures will appeal to both students and academics within a range of disciplines, including sociology, media and cultural studies, youth studies and popular music studies.

This studies of yours is very co tradicting, first you can not compare something to something if it does not start off the same, example: a plant that seed that has been sitting in water then next week you take another plant seed and sit it in water, what plant seed do you think will grow leaves first, ex,actly, the one that has been In the water a week Ago, why? Because the seed has softened up and the leaves can now blossom. The conclusion. Is they did not start on the same mark the first one has a head start. There for that is not a study, because it was fiixed that way so that's not a real study we all knew what was going to happen a study is to find out the truth.
