Early Adulthood in a Family Context, based on the 18th annual National Symposium on Family Issues, emphasizes the importance of both the family of origin and new and highly variable types of family formation experiences that occur in early adulthood. This volume showcases new theoretical, methodological, and measurement insights in hopes of advancing understanding of the influence of the family of origin on young adults' lives. Both family resources and constraints with respect to economic, social, and human capital are considered.

From the reviews:
"The book is based on papers presented at the 18th Annual Symposium on Family Issues in October 2011. ... each part of the book is a coherent piece and with each chapter the reader gets a wider or more detailed picture of the discussed topic. ... book offers valuable insight into how adolescents become adults and into how family is crucial in this process. ... may inform and enlighten our thinking not only about youth transition to adulthood, but also about fertility and family dynamics."
