About the Authors
  • How will the experience of adolescence be affected by key societal phenomena--demographic trends, information technology, environmental degredation, and advances in medicine and genetics? This important volume identifies such ominous changes as unstable job markets and widening income gaps, while at the same time observing opportunities created by information technology and innovations in health service delivery. Knowledgeable projections are vital in shaping research agendas and for alerting educators, policy makers, and practitioners to new issues in adolescent development.

    • Projects adolescence into the future
    • Examines demographic and macro-institutional trends (in the economy, technology, criminal justice, health institutions, etc.)
    • Examines adolescents' lives and prospects for adulthood in a changing, world-wide context
