Summary
  • "This book explores a new trend in the development from adolescence to adulthood which has arisen in recent generations. Traditionally, the changeover into adulthood was marked by a clear, irreversible change in condition. However, we are now witnessing a continuance in the role of the family and in parental influence on the young adult. What consequences will this have for our society? Is the persistence of emotional bonds which previously loosened during adolescence, inhibiting young people from developing into full adulthood?" "The authors present an analysis of the theoretical framework surrounding the transition into adulthood, from both a generational and a relationship-centred perspective. The findings of international research are examined and compared across generations, gender and geographical location. The different research methods of 'family related research' and 'family research' are also distinguished and analysed."
  • "The Transition to Adulthood offers a review of this topic. The family is analyzed as a form of organization, and the interdependencies and interconnections between its members, the generations, and the genders explored."--Jacket
