Has today’s overwhelming emphasis on “youth culture” widened the generation gap — or bridged it? Weighing the competing influences of peers and parents, the authors discuss parent-child relations and how sex, slang, music, cliques, gangs and reference groups play into identity issues.

Review:

Opening with a discussion of historical Puritan beliefs about children, sociologist Gerhard Falk (Buffalo State College) and psychotherapist Ursula Falk cover a wide range of topics related to adolescence, including parents, peers, sports, self-concept, homelessness, immigration, sex education, religion, recreation, drugs, subcultures, and slang... Usefully, the authors provide occasional short vignettes. Falk and Falk are also strong when discussing sociological concepts and presenting them accessibly. --Choice June 2006
