“Giroux's remains the singular critical voice about the closing off of democratic political, social, and economic prospects for non-privileged youth in America. In Youth in a Suspect Society, Giroux turns the tables, placing pressure where it belongs, on the delimiting social conditions that turn kids into ‘problems’ rather than on ‘problem kids.’ This, importantly, is a book about the renewal of democracy as much for the generation produced by our generation as for our own.” —David Theo Goldberg, Director, Humanities Research Institute, and Professor of Comparative Literature and Criminology, Law and Society, University of California-Irvine
“In this book, Giroux continues his valuable explorations of the diverse ways in which young people are badly positioned in contemporary U.S. society. Giroux documents a number of scandalous treatments of youth by our schools, media, police, state, and corporations and brings to light social injustices that must be addressed and ameliorated. Well-researched, written, and highly informative, this is a book that all concerned with the prospects and future of our youth should read and discuss.” —Douglas Kellner, Author of Guys and Guns Amok: Domestic Terrorism and School Shootings from the Oklahoma City Bombings to the Virginia Tech Massacre
