Adolescence, 8th edition by Laurence Steinberg has been thoroughly updated to reflect current findings in the field of adolescent development. In this edition, the author continues to utilize the effective combination of a friendly writing style, thorough research and a contextual approach that emphasizes adolescence in contemporary society. The text’s careful organization ensures maximum teaching flexibility that allows the chapters to work together or be covered in sequence or stand alone. Ethnicity and minority issues are thoroughly discussed in a way that enables students to see how the adolescent experience is shaped by class and culture. The strong pedagogical framework helps students organize and integrate material. Adolescence, 8th edition, is based on solid research and theory, yet it has a distinctively “real world” feel that emphasizes the reality of being an adolescent in today’s society.
