Summary
"The path adolescents take from childhood to adulthood is a product of social, economic, political, and technological forces. In the next century, these forces may facilitate youth's preparation to become healthy adults, or they may leave youth unprepared for adulthood. Knowledgeable projections are vital in shaping the agenda for research; for alerting educators, policy makers, and practitioners to new issues; and for formulating thoughtful responses to emerging dilemmas. This timely book focuses on the future of adolescence in postindustrial societies. The authors identity some ominous societal changes that will affect youth: unstable job markets, competition for public resources due to an aging population, and widening income gaps between "information workers" and low-skill workers. But they also observe numerous opportunities that may improve the lives of young people through the creation of new information technology, innovations in health-service delivery and criminal justice rehabilitation, and through the resourcefulness of a new generation. This volume examines these trends and other macrostructural changes that are likely to impact adolescents' lives and their futures as adults."--Page 4 of cover
