Product Description


"Young People, Place and Identity has bridged the scale gap in youth geographies by bringing us from localized understandings of young people to seeing the productions of youth spaces and identities across regional, national, and global lines. Hopkins' draws from his own and others' research with young people to work out youth perspectives on the construction and meanings of places such as 'home' and 'nation' with rich contextual details and stories from youth, but also links this empirical depth with significant new theoretical understandings that will push the discipline in fresh directions."                                    Meghan Cope, University of Vermont, USA

"A much needed text which will be invaluable for both students and teachers interested in young people’s experience of identity and place. It brings a rich geographical sensibility to the study of young people’s lives and will be highly relevant across the social sciences."   Elizabeth A. Gagen, University of Hull, UK

"Peter Hopkins has produced a valuable book that responds imaginatively to the rising interest amongst social scientists in questions of young people, place and identity. It is ambitious in its theoretical endeavour, broad in its geographic range and novel in its conceptual organisation. I'm sure it will appeal to social geographers and sociologists alike and the clarity of its writing and presentation will make it very popular with students."                                                                                                                    Professor Robert MacDonald, Teesside University, UK
