Description:

In his controversial new book, Giroux argues that the United States is at war with young people. No longer seen as the future of a democratic society, youth are now derided by politicians looking for quick-fix solutions to crime and demonized by the popular media. This perception of fear and disdain is being translated into social policy. Instead of providing a decent edu-cation to young people, we offer them the increasing poten-tial of being incarcerated. Instead of guaranteeing them decent health care, we serve them more standardized tests. There's a war on in the United States these days, and Giroux sees our youth as the target.
