520 This wide-ranging volume presents an in-depth picture of
adolescent sexuality and behavior. As perhaps the most
vital period in human development, adolescence is a time
of complex, often difficult interactions between diverse
influences. Here, nineteen scientists representing ten
disciplines explore the biological, psychological, and
cultural factors involved in the onset of puberty and its
associated emotional changes. Patterns of adolescent
sexual behavior are viewed in cross-cultural perspective,
psychiatric disorders are considered, and trends in
adolescent sexual activity, contraception, and pregnancy
are described. Key legal and social dilemmas are also
explored. This is the third volume in a groundbreaking
series from the Kinsey Institute, which has as its aim the
study of topics relating to sex, gender, and reproduction
that require an interdisciplinary approach. Previous
volumes in the series include Homosexuality/
Heterosexuality and Masculinity/Femininity.
