Abstract

This first-edition text provides a thorough and thoughtful consideration of development during the second decade of life. Two key features set this text apart from the other fine works that already exist in this niche. First, most texts end coverage around age 18, but Arnett covers the handful or so of years that follow--the period he calls "emerging adulthood." This inclusion of emerging adulthood serves to clarify and further elucidate the theme of continuity that underlies lifespan development models. The second distinguishing feature is the strong emphasis of contextual influences on development during adolescence and emerging adulthood.
