The "Waithood Generation" in Africa Book Will Release This Month

The Time of Youth, a new Kumarian Press publication by Alcinda Honwana, will release at the end of the month.

What is the "Waithood Generation" and how is it defined?

In The Time of Youth, Alcinda Honwana examines the lives of young people in Africa , drawing on in-depth interviews by young men and women in four African countries. In the book, Honwana argues that the "waithood generation” is global, and possesses a tremendous transformative potential, as young people believe the struggle to overcome lack of jobs and postponed adulthood requires radical social and political change. But, what will they do to get out of limbo?

The book can be pre-ordered today for $27.95 through the Kumarian Press website.
