This book aims to advance our understanding of the school-to-work transition through a comparative analysis of the influences that shape the educational and work opportunities of young people in two countries. The transitional process has profound implications for the opportunities of the next generation. This book addresses the basic sociological question of how social inequalities are being reproduced in the next generation, viewing the school-work transition as a key mechanism in this process. The value of this comparative perspective lies in its ability to identify how specific institutional and cultural contexts condition an individual's passage through life.
