MEDIA REVIEWS

'The 'Big Society' initiative by UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, to empower local people and communities to create an effective engagement with youth, music and the creative industries is an indication of the important role played by popular music in enriching the lives of marginalised and vulnerable young people. Bloustien and Peters' interlocking three-layered research framework thus offers a timely, thoughtful and thought-provoking model, which allows for a rigorous investigation into the support structures (people, organisations and educational, art and youth policies) necessary if such a vision is to succeed. Not least, their plea to monitor the effectiveness of government and council decisions regarding venues, environments and services to ensure that agendas are not simply crude governance mechanisms for youth containment or a fantasised pathway to employment is significant, and their international perspective provides the necessary layers of insight to make this both a topical and highly-readable text.' - Sheila Whiteley, Professor Emeritus, University of Salford, UK

'...should be required reading for anyone working in youth policy, students of youth culture transitions and popular music, and for educators at all levels.' - Youth Studies Australia
