Bad Youth

David R. Ambaras

University of California Press

This chapter shows that the onset of war presented urban working youths with new economic challenges and opportunities, but also notes that the expansion and continuation of conflict only worsened the long-standing fears of the authorities about the indiscipline and alienation of these youths. It shows that aggressive new measures were enacted to ensure the youth's conformity to national goals.

Keywords:   war, urban working youths, economic challenges, conflict, indiscipline, alienation, conformity, national goals
