The Age of Youth

(p.xvi) Introduction (p.1)
The Age of Youth in Argentina

Valeria Manzano

University of North Carolina Press

This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to examine how youth became a crucial cultural and political category, and one of the most dynamic cultural and political actors in Argentina, from the 1950s to the 1970s. The book shows that youth, as a concept, embodied hopes and anxieties projected onto claims for change, and that young people inhabited, with varying degrees of intensity, that politically and culturally loaded category. The chapter also reviews recent historical research on youth and sexuality, briefly describes the methodology used in the present study, and provides an overview of the subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   Argentina, youth culture, cultural change, social change, political participation, sexuality
