Ethnic minority youth in Australia: Challenges and myths offers new perspectives on youth issues. From Vietnamese-Australian youth in Sydney's Cabramatta, to Muslim students in Port Hedland, this book provides stimulus for discussion, activity and further research. It covers the different social contexts within which ethnic minority young people are located, looks at general issues such as gender, ethnicity, and feminism, juvenile justice, sport, sexuality and mental health, and includes specific case studies, programs and campaigns addressing specific issues in education, welfare provision and community action.

Of interest to youth and community workers, social workers, teachers, academics, policy makers and young people in general, Ethnic minority youth in Australia draws together a range of contributions on issues relevant to ethnic minority young people, revealing much about Australian society's basic institutions, processes and structures and about the way we are dealing with questions of social justice, equity and human rights.
