Presenting a conception of adolescence and emerging adulthood from a cultural perspective, this book includes a considerable amount of anthropology, sociology, and international research in addition to the usual psychological research done mostly in the United States. It encourages readers to think critically about the studies presented, enabling them to examine the subject in a cultural context. Topics include: biological foundations, cognitive functions, cultural beliefs, gender, the self, family, friends and peers, dating, love and sexuality, school, work, media, problems, and a 21st century look at adolescence and emerging adulthood. For teachers, sociologists, psychologists and psychiatrists; or anyone who works with those in the 10 - 25 age range.
