9780226278728: Teenage Wasteland: Suburbia's Dead End Kids

Teenage Wasteland provides memorable portraits of "rock and roll kids" and shrewd analyses of their interests in heavy metal music and Satanism. A powerful indictment of the often manipulative media coverage of youth crises and so-called alternative programs designed to help "troubled" teens, Teenage Wasteland draws new conclusions and presents solid reasons to admire the resilience of suburbia's dead end kids.

"A powerful book."—Samuel G. Freedman, New York Times Book Review

"[Gaines] sheds light on a poorly understood world and raises compelling questions about what society might do to help this alienated group of young people."—Ann Grimes, Washington Post Book World

"There is no comparable study of teenage suburban culture . . . and very few ethnographic inquiries written with anything like Gaines's native gusto or her luminous eye for detail."—Andrew Ross, Transition

"An outstanding case study. . . . Gaines shows how teens engage in cultural production and how such social agency is affected by economic transformations and institutional interventions."—Richard Lachman, Contemporary Sociology

"The best book on contemporary youth culture."—Rolling Stone

From the Author:

In the years following the 1987 quadruple teenage suicide pact in Bergenfield, New Jersey, our youth have triumphed in many ways, innovating across categories of American culture and commerce. Despite the forces that pushed them down, most young people do survive.

In the 1990's, gang-related homicide upstaged suicide as the leading death among young people, after accidents. Again youth subculture was demonized; hip hop culture and rap music were blamed. At Columbine, we saw a new breed of angry American child. Part kamikaze, part suicide, part serial killer, two "outcasts" obliterated their peers and themselves. Once again, adults blamed youth subculture; goth, the Internet, video games and Marilyn Manson.

Adults still refuse to address the real issues; institutional failures, structural inequities and the brutalities that make up everyday life for too may kids. Young people continue to fight back. And again, they will prevail.

From the Back Cover:

Teenage Wasteland provides memorable portraits of "rock and roll kids" and analyses of their interests in heavy metal music and Satanism. A powerful indictment of the often manipulative media coverage of youth crises and so-called alternative programs designed to help "troubled" teens, Teenage Wasteland draws new conclusions and presents solid reasons to admire the resilience of suburbia's dead end kids.
