9780123739155: Encyclopedia of Adolescence

The period of adolescence involves growth, adaptation, and dramatic reorganization in almost every aspect of social and psychological development. The Encyclopedia of Adolescence offers an exhaustive and comprehensive review of current theory and research findings pertaining to this critical decade of life. Leading scientists offer accessible and easily readable reviews of biological, social, educational, occupational, and cultural factors that shape adolescent development. Issues in normative development, individual differences, and psychopathology/maladjustment are reviewed. Over 130 chapters are included, each covering a specific aspect or issue of adolescence. The chapters trace differences in the course of adolescence in different nations and among youth with different backgrounds.

The encyclopedia brings together cross-disciplinary contributors, including academic researchers, biologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, anthropologists and public policy experts, and will include authors from around the world. Each article features an in-depth analysis of current information on the topic, along with a glossary, suggested readings for further information, and cross-references to related encyclopedia articles. The volumes offer an unprecedented resource for all audiences, providing a more comprehensive understanding of general topics compared to other reference works on the subject.

Review:

"2011 PROSE Award Winner for Multivolume Reference/Humanities & Social Science" Academic Press/Elsevier Science & Technology Encyclopedia of Adolescence, Editors-in-Chief: B. Bradford Brown and Mitchell J. Prinstein "Organizing any reference work is a demanding task, especially when providing a worldwide overview of what is known about adolescence. This innovative encyclopedia, organized around adolescent issues and experiences, uses a three-pronged framework for its 125 broad topical essays. The detailed index points to specific terms within the topics. The highly accomplished contributors come from all relevant disciplines and many countries. The comprehensive essays are logically presented and clearly written. They will serve as excellent introductions for a wide range of readers. This set is also available electronically on the ScienceDirect platform (CH, Sep'06, 44-0034). Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."--CHOICE
