Youth Transitions in Britain on the Threshold of a 'New Europe'.
Chisholm, Lynne
Journal of Education Policy, v8 n1 p29-41 1993
Considers social construction of youth phase, noting that transitions to adulthood in Great Britain are completed biographically sooner than in comparable continental European countries. Relationship between formal qualifications and occupation-entry conditions is relatively flexible. British young people tend to attain financial independence from their parents earlier than their European community counterparts and have relatively low postcompulsory education participation rates.
