Overview

This wide-ranging volume presents an in-depth picture of adolescent sexuality and behavior. As perhaps the most vital period in human development, adolescence is a time of complex, often difficult interactions between diverse influences. Here, nineteen scientists representing ten disciplines explore the biological, psychological, and cultural factors involved in the onset of puberty and its associated emotional changes. Patterns of adolescent sexual behavior are viewed in cross-cultural perspective, psychiatric disorders are considered, and trends in adolescent sexual activity, contraception, and pregnancy are described. Key legal and social dilemmas are also explored. This is the third volume in a groundbreaking series from the Kinsey Institute, which has as its aim the study of topics relating to sex, gender, and reproduction that require an interdisciplinary approach. Previous volumes in the series include Homosexuality/Heterosexuality and Masculinity/Femininity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing reflects a diversity of perspectives modified by the feedback from specialists in other areas. . . .Will be of interest to and understood by not only members of a wide range of academic disciplines but by most educated laypersons." —Contemporary Psychology

"An important book. . . .There is much worthwhile material here." —Journal of Child Psychol. Psychiat.

"The editors of this volume clearly succeed in delivering a readable, interdisciplinary treatise with important technical information on the interface between adolescence, puberty, and sexuality. . . . an important contribution. An excellent set of readings could be extracted from it . . . to offer a comprehensive, analytic, and challenging course." — Gerald R. Adams, PhD. (University of Guelph), Archives of Sexual Behavior

Any ways id rather just ask a doctor or somebody i know for free. I bet only like 3 people bought this book and they probably thought it stunk. And i got the free sample of this book and it was not one bit good or even informativeof what this stupid book was even about. any ways back to the money thing i would not even payb two ninetynine for this piece of crap why coudnt somebody just ask a doctor or a friend or a parent for free the people that got this book are idiots
