From the Publisher:

Adolescent pregnancy as a public policy issue

Eliot Freidson Outstanding Book in Medical Sociology, American Sociological Association

From the Inside Flap:

"[A]n important and provocative discussion of current responses to teenage pregnancy in the United States...and it representative of the best of social problems scholarship. Dangerous Passage is meticulously researched, gracefully written, draws artfully on historical parallels, and in the tradition of this genre, shows the reader that a problem that has fundamentally social roots is nonetheless addressed—by all would-be 'owners'—at the level of individual behavior."
—Carol Joffe, American Journal of Sociology

"Nathanson's explanation is a complex and nuanced one that...explore[s] the organization of perspectives about teenage pregnancy and the political uses to which those constructions have been put.... Her discussion of sexual visibility and concealment is brilliant.... This should be required reading for policy makers and advocates in the area of family planning and human services."
—Kathy Peiss, University of Massachusetts
