Summary

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.

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.

For individuals in a variety of fields relating to adolescents.
