Adolescent Identity : Evolutionary, Cultural and Developmental Perspectives, Hardback Book

Adolescent Identity : Evolutionary, Cultural and Developmental Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Bonnie Lynn Hewlett

Part of the Routledge Studies in Anthropology series

Description

As our world becomes increasingly permeable, and as human populations are rapidly converging and transitioning within a global interconnectedness, it is vital that we look to, and learn from, those most adept at the adaptation, creation, and contesting of culture: adolescents.

This text is designed to bridge critical gaps in the understanding of the daily lives, identity development, and experiences of adolescents in diverse cultures around the world.

Cultural context is predictive of developmental uniqueness; comparisons provide insights into how social structures and relationships influence the manifestation of individual patterns of development and experience.

In quantitative and qualitative detail, the contributors relate the nature of adolescent life to cultural, biological, ecological, demographic, and social variables.

The findings of this book will be relevant not only to other social anthropologists, but also to sociologists and developmental/educational psychologists.
