"The youths' portraits are uniformly structured, yet very different one fron the other. One really gets to the heart of the different life conditions and experiences of the youth, their differing representations of language and linguistic communities, and their different ensuing identity positioning."

"This is a comprehensive, well written and well researched study. Working within a critical postmodern perspective, the author demonstrates the limitations of classic sociological theories, and carefully identifies the problems associated with essentialist notions of individual identity. The study is particularly interesting because it demonstrates in the students' own words that one's identity is not fixed in its development; instead, identity is fluid, situational, and highly influenced by specific contexts of interactions. A lovely breakthrough in thinking."
