From the Publisher"This book has numerous strenghts. As Richard Jessor, chair of the Research Network on Successful Adolescent Development, explains in the foreword, Good Kids offers an example of the new transdisciplinary research taht tackles a complex social problem from multiple perspectives. In moving beyond sociology's traditional focus on structural variables, such as social class, to identify the explanatory mechanissm that ccount for the effect of those structural variables on human lives, the researchers have contributed an important model for future development."

"The authors go beyond the one-dimensional approach as their work articulates and tests a framework for understanding the impact of multiple contexts on youth development...As they provide this important study in helping us understand youth development, they also push the field of social inquiry to consider the influence of multiple contexts on all aspects of life."
—Stephanie Cosner Berzin, Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
