Young, free and single? : twenty-somethings and household change by Sue Heath( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Bridget Jones' Diary through to Friends and The Secret Life of Us, the single young adult is a subject of fascination in contemporary culture. Envied and disapproved of in equal measures by older generations, twenty-somethings have become potent icons of social change. Set against the backdrop of the ongoing destandardisation of household formation, this ground-breaking book explores the context of these changing patterns. Drawing together a wealth of research from Europe, North America and Australia, alongside new evidence from a study of non-students living in shared households, the authors argue that contemporary young adults - with graduates in the vanguard of change - are questioning the relative attractiveness of different domestic arrangements during their twenties and, as a consequence, are redefining the boundaries between youth and adulthood."--Jacket
