The contents include seven sections: (1) "'Young People in 1995'--Who Are They, What Sets Them Apart?"; (2) "Young People and Drugs"; (3) "Young People and Violence"; (4) "Young People and Unemployment"; (5) "Youth Assistance"; (6) "The Majority: Optimistic, Open and Active"; and (7) "Would You Like to Know More? (Suggested Reading)." (EH)
