Abstract:

Are our current ways of talking about ""the problem of adolescence"" really that different than those of past generations? For the past decade, Act Your Age! has provided a provocative and now classic analysis of the accepted ways of viewing teens. By employing a groundbreaking ""history of the present"" methodology that resists traditional chronology, author Nancy Lesko analyzes both historical and present social and political factors that produce the presumed ""natural adolescent."" This resulting seminal work in the field of youth study forces readers to rethink the dominant interpretations.
