Youth Marginality in Britain

Anthony Ruddy

Policy Press

Anthony Ruddy examines the experiences of young people growing up in contexts of multiple deprivation and material hardship in a small, deindustrialised town in North East England. Using ethnographic and biographical subjective narratives from young people he focuses on the interplay between youth poverty and material inequality, resistance and the ordinary lives of young people from marginalized communities. This is a study on significant financial hardship and deep poverty intersects with structural economic and social degeneration, discrimination and individual victimization. He offers direct emotional insight into the lives of young adults who on a day-to-day basis experience different forms of marginalisation as part of their struggle of transition to adulthood.
