Youth Work: Histories, Policy and Contexts

graham bright

At this moment I’ve read properly three of the chapters in this new and welcome addition to the youth work literature, edited by Graham Bright of the York St John University. My positive response bodes well for the rest of the book’s contents. Hopefully we’ll publish a critical review in the near future. Certainly students seeking analyses rooted in today’s shifting circumstances will find much of value and relevance.
