The Information Revolution has done much to improve the standard of living within industrialized countries during the last half-century. Despite these gains, deep divisions characterize the advanced industrial societies. This book examines two opposite ways that information technologies affect disadvantaged youth. On the one side, some contributors are concerned that the Information Revolution is worsening social exclusion. On the other side, some scholars argue that information technologies provide a powerful tool for reducing the social exclusion and educational disadvantages experienced by some young people.
