Youth Movements and Generational Politics, 19th–21st Centuries

Youth Movements and Generational Politics, 19th–21st Centuries

Edited by Richard G. Braungart & Margaret M. Braungart

Youth Movements and Generational Politics, 19th–21st Centuries by Richard and Margaret Braungart is a collection of 19 of their previously published research articles on youthful political activism, generational conflict and social change—from the first student movement in Germany in 1815 to the international eruption of youth unrest and demonstrations in the 21st century. A concluding chapter assesses the global trends and worldwide surge in youth movement activity from 2000 to 2020, which is then put into perspective in relation to previous historical generations of youthful political unrest.
