Abstract

Defining the world’s young people as those born after 1979 – a hugely symbolic moment in the history of globalisation – Regeneration reflects on the massive growth of ingenerational protest across the globe thirty years later and interprets contemporary politics through a generational lens. The incapacity of the major political parties in Britain to think beyond their short-term electoral interests is particularly harmful for those at the beginning of their adult lives. It has led to failures to act on climate change, savage cutbacks in education and training, an acute shortage of housing, cuts in youth services, and, for many, the prospect of an old age without pensions. And things continue to deteriorate. But, as Shiv Malik argues in his preface, a diagnosis of the problem does not absolve the young from taking responsibility for developing solutions. We need more than ‘a whinge of epic proportions’. This book also has plenty of ideas for changing the future. Part of the Radical Future e-book series.
