Why are so many adult children living still living with mum and dad? Why do young people seem so disinterested in politics? And what are the hidden threats to Britainís long-term prosperity lurking in the next few decades?
First published in 2010, Ed Howker and Shiv Mailkís Jilted Generation answers fundamental questions about the society you thought you knew. It identified, for the first time, the perilous position of Britainís young adults and, with a title brandished by everyone from Ed Miliband to student protesters, the bookís thesis has formed a controversial but essential part of Britainís political debate.
With significant additional material, this edition updates the argument and explains the real effects of austerity policies and the recession. And, crucially, it explains what must be done to protect a vital and underestimated national asset Ė Britainís newest adults.
