Addressing both the changes in the study of adolescent behaviour and the changes in the nature of adolescent development, this work provides a cross-cultural look at this pivotal period. Covering every aspect of adolescent development as it takes place in cultures worldwide currently and historically, this work takes a longer age range approach to adolescence by expanding coverage into the early twenties and giving attention to changes and continuities in development that take place during this period of "emerging adulthood".
