In the spirit of No Logo and Fast Food Nation, Disconnected is the author's journey into modern youth culture, meeting and speaking to hundreds of kids on the way. Shocking and revealing, it gives adults an insight into understanding a generation gap that has never been so wide. 'I wanted to discover what young people are really up to. To see how far they've come - and where they think they're going.;Today's young generation don't want reality. They want disconnection - a world of novelty, velocity and volume. A world without implications or responsibilities, where your personality is defined by how you dress, who you listen to, and which kind of celebrity you want to be. Their values and behaviour are changing at an unprecedented rate. They are not inheriting our culture - they're moving into a new improved version, with a permanent soundtrack (that you don't like), a new language (that you don't understand) and a radical morality (that you don't accept).' Confronting crime, underage sex, fame obsession, violence, ambition, learning and friendship, Nick Barham's compelling investigation finds that this disconnection from what adults understand to be substantial or real is creating a radical new youth culture.
