9780131950719: Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood: A Cultural Approach

For undergraduate courses in Adolescence and Adolescent Development

 

Focused on a global cultural perspective that incorporates research on adolescence through emerging adulthood

 

Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text includes a considerable amount of anthropology, sociology, and international research in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of emerging adulthood (ages 18-25), an area sometimes neglected but of particular interest to many students who see themselves reflected in the research.

Review:

"Jeff has made some intelligent decisions that make the chapter (and the book in general) particularly effective. First and foremost, he has decided to focus on the most important issues in the field and to avoid the trap of trying to be encyclopedic…. As a result of limiting himself to major issues, he has time and space to develop intelligently the points he is making. Second, he has zeroed in on a few key-crosscutting themes that inform each of the chapters (that I have seen) in the volume…. The themes he has chosen—the interdisciplinary nature of adolescence and thus the need for an interdisciplinary approach, gender issues, and historical and cultural perspectives—are issues that are not only important, but will weather well. As a result, the approach taken in the volume will stand the test of time—the volume is informative and interesting; up-to-date but not faddish."—S. Shirley Feldman, Ph.D., Stanford University



"I really like the way Jeff has presented the issues in a broad cultural context. I think this will be so helpful in getting students to understand American adolescents' family relationships, as well as benefiting them by giving them knowledge of how things work for other cultural groups…."—Reed Larson, Ph.D., University of Illinois



"The combination of research from multiple disciplines was exciting, as was the integration of cultural, historical, and research perspectives. I liked the in-depth approach to the discussion of important research studies. I felt I was reading a unique text."—Bonnie B. Dowdy, Ph.D., Dickinson College
