Book Description

28 Feb 2012 0415508134 978-0415508131

Facing a crisis unlike that of any other generation, young people are caught between the discourses of consumerism and a powerful crime-control-complex, and are viewed increasingly as commodities or are subjected to the dictates of an ever expanding criminal justice system. Drawing upon critical analyses, biography, and social theory, Disposable Youth explores the current conditions of young people now face within an emerging culture of privatization, insecurity, and commodification and raises some important questions regarding the role that educators, young people, and concerned citizens might play in challenging the plight of young people, while deepening and extending the promise of a better future and a viable democracy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing.... 7 Jan 2013
By Juan Victorio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Giroux truly brings forth an ideology that incorporates the manner by which the current social economic system in our education and regular life are basically assimilating people into disposable commodities without caring of our humanity.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good read with lots of general emphasis on racist tendencies towards poor youths. 5 Feb 2014
By Sankung P Susso - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book used the author's personal experiences and tied it to social situations in which poor youths are disadvantaged by society due to social policy constructions.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 18 Dec 2013

As a "lifelong" educator I believe Henry Giroux's work should be taught at every level of educator training. It is what we know validated by his work and proofs! Excellent work for all people to be positively affected.

4.0 out of 5 stars dr.g 6 Mar 2014
By Kimberly White Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We are so quick to write off generations, but whatever we say that they are, is a direct reflection of the conditions we made for them. Giroux examines and discusses the entrapments that youth culture encounters and celebrates the young resistance movements. Youth are not disposable, they are fierce and capable of creating a more equal society.
