"The authors use incredible depth and breadth of research in attempting to explain some of the underlying issues that could explain the problems facing British adolescents." Journal of Youth Adolescence
"Full of important new information about today's young people, and their parents, 'Changing adolescence' documents how the lives of adolescents have undergone enormous changes in recent history which are accelerating. This book provides a badly needed clear and exciting social science agenda to uncover the consequences of these remarkable changes." Terrie E Moffitt, Kings College London and Duke University
"Ann Hagell and her co-authors have performed an immensely valuable service in clearly delineating what we currently know, don't know and ought to know about adolescent life courses. We see here young people growing up both faster and more slowly, as well as creating and responding to a rapidly changing social, economic and cultural context. The book not only shows what a rich and nuanced world this is, but also how it can be subject to unhelpful and ill-informed stereotyping. The authors succeed in getting us beyond a familiar deficit model, but to a place where we can be cautiously optimistic about the second decade of life." Professor Sir David Watson, Principal, Green Templeton College Oxford
