International Perspectives on Youth Conflict and Development

Edited by Colette Daiute, Zeynep F. Beykont, Craig Higson-Smith, and Larry Nucci

The volume aims to shift the foundation of youth conflict study from the more typical focus on maturation, behavior, and personality to a characterization of youth as participants in society. It also expands the analysis of youth development to include societal problems such as political instability, unequal access to material resources, racism, and social injustice. Offering new insights about the interdependent spheres of conflict involving young people, this groundbreaking, international compilation describes processes of a violent world rather than of violent youth.
