Full text not available from this repository.


This is a study of young people in Britain who have left home before the age of 21, 80 young people from the four contrasting areas of Swindon, Liverpool, Sheffield and Kirkcaldy were interviewed in depth. The book is a contribution to this relatively neglected topic and looks at various critical and under-researched social issues: youth, homelessness, courtship, marriage and family formation and single parenthood. Drawing on his interviews, the author gives insights into the dynamics of family life, housing situations, attitudes and political issues and the contrasting self concepts of these young people.
