Table of contents
"This multidisciplinary collection of essays provides up-to-date summaries of contemporary trends in adolescents and emerging adults' romantic and sexual intimate relationships [and] ... notable insights on the ways in which adolescents and young adults' choices regarding romantic and sexual relationships are very different from previous generations. ... [It] is a classic in bridging key ideas from distinct disciplinary traditions, and exemplifies that multidisciplinary work is essential for understanding how romantic and sexual relationships during adolescence influence the transition to emerging adulthood." - Monica A. Longmore, Bowling Green State University, USA
"A book becomes a classic when it presents ... information in such a comprehensive or unique way that its information remains valuable for a long time. ...The Crouter and Booth book fits this definition perfectly. I have never found a book that replaces the range and quality of these contributions covering love, romance and sex among adolescents. The data remains relevant and the cogent analyses by multiple authors, impressive and provocative. ... I am always taking it down and using it." - Pepper Schwartz, University of Washington, USA
"All articles are well written and most certainly have their points... I truly enjoyed reading this book as it engages the reader in critical thinking and reflection... The whole book, or chapters of it are certainly of use in the classroom when discussing several different topics concerning adolescents and romantic and sexual relationships and I recommend this book to anyone interested in the topic." - Elin Weiss, University College Dublin, MetaPsychology
