    Originally published in 1985, this book brings together diverse perspectives of global policy and experience concerning threatened or high levels of youth unemployment and the measures taken in the countries concerned. From the examples quoted it is obvious that there was little consensus concerning what one is led to believe life after school is about or what one would like life after school to be about, and how these expectations and aspirations may be accommodated.
