Emerging adulthood has been identified as an important developmental stage, characterised by identity exploration, instability and open possibilities, in which young people are no longer adolescents but have not yet attained full adult status. This ground-breaking edited collection is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of emerging adulthood in a European context, which includes a comparison of findings in 9 different European countries and the USA.

Each chapter, written by a leading European researcher, describes the socio-demographic characteristics of emerging adults, reviews the state of the field, synthesises new findings, and provides suggestions for how to move forward in research, interventions, and policy. The book examines how the traditional domain markers of adulthood, such as finishing education and caring for children, have changed. It also highlights how different factors such as gender, working status, living arrangements, romantic status and parental educational background affect the importance assigned to each set of adulthood criteria. The theory of emerging adulthood is further developed by considering how Arnett’s emerging adulthood, Erikson’s early adulthood, and Robinson’s theory of early adult crisis fit together, and data is provided to support the new framework given.

The book will be of great interest to researchers interested in these developmental transitions, and to advanced students of Emerging Adulthood on developmental psychology and lifespan courses, and related disciplines.

About the Author:

Rita Žukauskienė is a full professor of psychology at the Institute of Psychology, Mykolas Romeris University in Vilnius, Lithuania. She is author (or co-author) of 7 books, and over 160 journal articles with a focus on studying individual developmental pathways from childhood to adolescence and to emerging adulthood. She is currently leading a longitudinal project, "POSIDEV", examining positive youth development from adolescence to emerging adulthood.

Review:

"There is no single, clear-cut path to adulthood and nowhere is the diversity of paths more apparent than in Europe. This book provides an eye-opening examination of the complex factors (e.g., culture, educational structures, belief systems, family values, economies, political histories) impacting the lives of emerging adults within a variety of European countries as they make their way through the third decade of life. It marks a huge step forward in our scholarly understanding of the transition to adulthood in Europe."
Larry J. Nelson, School of Family Life, Brigham Young University, USA
