Description

Transitions and Social Change: The Early Lives of American Men deals with the timing and synchronization of transition events that signify the passage of American males from adolescence to adulthood.

The book is divided into four parts. Part I is an introduction to the study and its data and methods. This part also deals with the passage to adulthood, education, work, and adolescence. Part II covers the intercohort differences in the transition to adulthood. Part III studies the effects of social background differentials such as social class background, the size of the community, and ethnic ancestry to the transition to adulthood. Part IV talks about the possible consequences of early life-course transition behavior, transition to adulthood and marital stability, and social change and the transition to adulthood.

The text is recommended for anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, and any experts in the field who wish to know more about the transition of American adolescent males into adulthood, the factors that affect it, and its effects.
