The world's youth : adolescence in eight regions of the globe( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life stage of adolescence now occurs in most corners of the world, but it takes different forms in different regions. Peers, with such a central role in Western adolescence, play a comparatively minor role in the lives of Arabic and South Asian adolescents. Emotional turmoil and individuation from family occur in some societies but not others. Adolescent sexual revolutions are sweeping through Japan and Latin America. In this book, scholars from eight regions of the world describe the distinct nature of adolescence in their regions. They draw on research to address standard topics regarding this age - family and peer relationships, schooling, preparation for work, physical and mental health - and show how these have a different cast across societies. As a whole, the book depicts how rapid global change is dramatically altering the experience of the adolescent transition, creating new opportunities and challenges for adolescents, parents, teachers, and concerned others
The changing adolescent experience : societal trends and the transition to adulthood by Jeylan T Mortimer( Book )

17 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The path adolescents take from childhood to adulthood is a product of social, economic, political, and technological forces. In the next century, these forces may facilitate youth's preparation to become healthy adults, or they may leave youth unprepared for adulthood. Knowledgeable projections are vital in shaping the agenda for research; for alerting educators, policy makers, and practitioners to new issues; and for formulating thoughtful responses to emerging dilemmas. This timely book focuses on the future of adolescence in postindustrial societies. The authors identity some ominous societal changes that will affect youth: unstable job markets, competition for public resources due to an aging population, and widening income gaps between "information workers" and low-skill workers. But they also observe numerous opportunities that may improve the lives of young people through the creation of new information technology, innovations in health-service delivery and criminal justice rehabilitation, and through the resourcefulness of a new generation. This volume examines these trends and other macrostructural changes that are likely to impact adolescents' lives and their futures as adults."--Page 4 of cover

As the chapters in this volume demonstrate, young, disadvantaged men from urban neighborhoods face a unique set of challenges and constraints as they transition to adulthood. Yet, these challenges are not always contained by place. Research among Latino and White disadvantaged men in nonurban settings highlights the pressures that come along with fatherhood for disadvantaged men. In contrast to popular understandings of absent or disengaged fathers, findings reveal how fatherhood and increasing levels of interdependence during early adulthood can buffer men as they make the difficult transit
