Reviews

'The contributors challenge the concepts of adolescence derived from G. Stanley Hall, as well as Piaget's stage theory. The essays range from the descriptive to the theoretical, but all of them question accepted ways of looking at children and stimulate the reader. [...] Highly recommended.' - S. Sugarman, Choice
