Summary

The book emphasizes an eclectic approach to adolescence since it presents not just one theory on the subject but many, discussing the contributions, strengths, and weaknesses of each. Rice also takes into consideration current and important topics, such as relationships and the influence of culture. The result is a treatment of the adolescent that offers current scholarship as well as an understanding of what it means to be an adolescent in today's society.
