Summary

A rich and timely introduction to the field of adolescent development, this book incorporates culture throughout the world as a key element in understanding development in adolescence and emerging adulthood (ages 18-25). It uses a timely interdisciplinary perspective to present key theories, research and application. Many first person accounts from adolescents across cultures as well as critical thinking questions make this an engaging and interesting introduction to the field of adolescent development.

Chapter topics include: biological foundations, cognitive foundations, cultural beliefs, gender, the self, family relationships, friends and peers, dating, love, sexuality, school, work, media, and adolescence and emerging adulthood in the 21st century.
