9780205899517: Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood, Books a la Carte Edition (5th Edition)

Helps students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood.  

 

Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text enriches the discussion with historical context and an interdisciplinary approach, including studies from fields such as anthropology and sociology, in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of “emerging adulthood” (ages 18-25), a term coined by the author, and an area of study for which Arnett is a leading expert.   

 

Arnett continues the fifth edition with new and updated studies, both U.S. and international. With Pearson’s MyDevelopmentLab Video Series and Powerpoints embedded with video, students can experience a true cross-cultural experience.

From the Back Cover:

Addressing both the changes in the study of adolescent behavior and the changes in the nature of adolescent development in Western society, this informative collection of readings provides a comprehensive cross cultural perspective of adolescent development. Covering every aspect of adolescent development as it takes place in cultures worldwide and historically, this book takes a longer age range approach to emerging adulthood and provides a look at this pivotal developmental period extending into the early twenties. Essays analyze the changes in the study of adolescent development and changes in adolescent development from age ten to early twenties historically and around the world. For individuals interested in adolescent development.

Review:

 

“There is a lot of information that gives breadth and depth to the content. In addition, the focus on cultural diversity far exceeds any other text on adolescent development.”

        - Rob Weisskirch, California State University- Monterey Bay

 

“The greatest strength of this text is the focus on varying cultural lenses and the use of updated research studies and frameworks to help guide students in understanding multiple perspectives of adolescent development.”

        - William Jared DuPree, University of Houston Clear Lake

 

“The cross-cultural emphasis is essential! It's the reason I chose the book over others at first. Emerging adulthood is really essential.”

        - Mary Vandendorpe, Lewis University

 

“The way that the material is presented really resonates with the students and they really review it well at the end of the semester. This is a wonderful text for college students”

        - Paige Curran, Emmanuel College

 

It is the best book out there for cultural issues. It is engaging, well-written and my students like it.”

        - Janet Gebelt, Westfield State University
