The Adolescent: Development, Relationships, and Culture
The Adolescent: Development, Relationships and Culture offers an eclectic, interdisciplinary approach to the study of adolescence, presenting both psychological and sociological viewpoints as well as educational, demographic, and economic data. This text discusses not just one theory on the subject, but many, and outlines the contributions, strengths, and weaknesses of each. The authors also take into consideration current and important topics such as ethnic identity formation, gender issues, the Internet, effects of single-parent families, etc. The twelfth edition features a beautiful new full-color design. The result is a vibrant treatment of the adolescent that offers current scholarship as well as an understanding of what it means to be an adolescent today.
