Are we seeing a new lost generation of young people facing high unemployment, huge debts, intergenerational conflict and urban riots? Owen Jones' Chavs created a huge debate and saw him established as the spokesperson of the Left, attacking greed and the causes of the riots. He joins James Miller, novelist and commentator, and Kieran Yates, author of Summer of Unrest: Generation Vexed: What the English Riots Don't Tell us About Our Nations' Youth - a street level report from the youth of today.
Price: £7.00 / £6.00.
