About the Book

This book will make fascinating reading for anyone involved in the study of adolescence, or working with adolescents. The authors explore the transitions of school, family and personality in the contexts of family, friends and wider social factors. This exploration is based on original research carried out in Canberra, Winnipeg, Phoenix, Berlin, Hong Kong, Osaka and Taipei. The authors also provide valuable insights into the methodologies of cross-cultural study.

The perspectives of this book make it an ideal resource for undergraduates and masters students undertaking a cross-cultural study, which is becoming a mandatory part of many degree courses.
