The study described in this volume focuses on two cohorts, one that finished secondary school in 1991, referred to as "Generation X," and one that finished secondary school in 2006, referred to as "Generation Y."1 Anchoring their analysis in Pierre Bourdieu's concept of habitus, Cuervo and Wyn explore the unique experiences of Generation X as they were "unexpecting participants in an education revolution" (p. 15) brought about by changes in labor force and workplace conditions that increasingly necessitated post-secondary education. [...]chapter six provides insight into how "young people living in areas characterised by production landscape make it work" (p. 156).
