Jan 12, Jodi rated it liked it I wavered between three and four stars on this book. On the one hand, there was a lot of fascinating facts, but on the other hand, it was interspersed with some very dull sections. Even though I learned a lot, it bugged me that Savage at times held up examples of the minority and then applied their actions with sweeping generalization to all adolescents.
He even says in his introduction, "It may be argued that I have concentrated too much on the extraordinary rather than the ordinary, the extrem I wavered between three and four stars on this book. He even says in his introduction, "It may be argued that I have concentrated too much on the extraordinary rather than the ordinary, the extreme at the expense of the routine.
I DO argue that! I also wearied of hearing about how every decade the teens were at odds with their parents, that there was this huge generation gap, that morals were disintegrating, the adults had somehow failed the youth, etc. Savage never mentioned, "Hey, this was just like the previous decade when kids and adults didn't get along!
It did put the England riots of August of last year in perspective. Riots like that are nothing new. Kids and parents are going to have a generation gap. We don't need to get our knickers in a twist because history just repeats itself over and over again. I did learn so much though which made this book and the late fee the library will charge me when I finally return it worth it.
It also made me incredibly grateful to my teens who though far from perfect, are fairly obedient and loving. I figured it'd probably have an annoying amount of pop culture trivia and nostalgic narratives but hoped it'd also get into things like legitimate rebellion against authority versus rebelling just because it's fun, examples of youth groups being hijacked or surreptitiously created by business interests, constant change keeping generations from interacting with each other, kids rejecting everything about their parents' lifestyles instead of just I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one.

He does touch on a lot of these things as well as things like the role sports have played in wiring our brains for nationalism and the perpetual hypocrisies of the older generations towards their kids and the scapegoating of both young and old that occurs when society runs into problems.
Unfortunately, his complete focus on the subject of adolescence led to an oversimplified analysis of things like the causes of wars and political issues.
What he says about the bombing of Hiroshima was particularly irritating. I also think this would have benefitted from more ideas about the treatment of youth in non-western cultures and in both earlier and later time periods it mainly focuses only on the late 's toespecially considering how thick this book is.
I didn't hate it though. Teenage takes Jon Savage went to Cambridge, but instead of doing what Cambridge grads normally do, he started writing reviews of punk shows for "Sounds" magazine, moved to Manchester where he befriended a new band called Joy Division and a scruffy young folk guitarist named Johnny Marr, and ultimately stumbled into becoming one of the finest Anglo-American pop culture commentators of the late 20th century.
