Long and Winding Road: Adolescents and Youth in Canada Today

This book takes a critical and sympathetic look at the problems and challenges faced by Canadian adolescents and youth at the turn of the millenium. Vappu Tyyskä's comprehensive synthesis of Canadian research on adolescents and youth argues convincingly that the attack on young people as a semi-literate group prone to destructive or antisocial acts is not supported by sociological data.

The negative image of youth derives from the power relations to which they are subject and against which they struggle. Dr. Tyyskä introduces us to the most important findings of a generation of research in the field, including an examination of the significance of gender, race and ethnicity.
