Summary

In this ninth edition of Adolescence, Laurence Steinberg continues to utilize an effective combination of a friendly writing style, thorough research, and a contextual approach that emphasizes adolescence in contemporary society.

The text's careful organization ensures maximum teaching flexibility that allows the chapters to work together to be covered in sequence or to stand alone. Ethnicity and minority issues are thoroughly discussed in a way that enables students to see how the adolescent experience is shaped by class and culture. The strong pedagogical framework helps students organize and integrate material.

In this trusted textbook, world-renowned researcher and author Laurence Steinberg presents the scientific study of adolescence in a clear and accessible writing style. Theories and research methods are integrated into each chapter. The text emphasizes depth of research and stresses the fact that the context in which adolescents live affects their behavior and social relationships.

Thoroughly updated to reflect current findings in the field of adolescent development, Adolescence is based on solid research and theory, yet it has a distinctively "real world" feel that emphasizes the reality of being an adolescent in today's society.

An Excellent Review of Relevant Research and Theories March 29, 2011
by
When you open the textbook and begin reading from the Preface, you are quietly introduced to Laurence Steinberg and recognize immediately his apparent wisdom and experience in the subject of adolescence. The content of the surprisingly thin 500-page textbook is a treasure for anyone who is willing to dispel old myths of adolescent behavior and to consider the scientific evidence we have to date.
