Reviews

This is a significantly revised edition of Youth: The Years From Ten to Sixteen , published in 1956. The revision follows the somewhat tedious format of the original, which gives a chronological analysis of white middle-class American youth. It differs from the original in that ages 15 and 16 are excluded and current issues such as smoking, sexual activity, and drugs are discussed. Comparing adolescents today with those of the 1950s, the new work finds, interestingly, that adolescents' attitudes have remained relatively constant. This is a timely work; the statistics collected should be sobering to many parents and teachers. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries. Kim Banks, Co lumbia Univ. Libs., New York
