Synthesizes available research into an exhaustive review of all aspects of premature pregnancy. The author demonstrates the need for social service support for premature parents and presents empirical evidence to support his suggestions for improved services. The book is one of the first to explore the high levels of correlation between early parenthood and child abuse. It also provides hard information on the outcomes of the decision to abort, or of young marriages resulting from pregnancy, and describes the demographic characteristics and psychological dynamics of the problem.
`This reviewer has spent several years working with adolescents both pregnant and parents and found Bolton's presentation timely, accurate and even frightening. This group within our society is indeed making its impact felt and with an estimated 90% of pregnant teens opting to keep their child, more research of this caliber is needed. Perhaps for some the book may be too research and statistically oriented but for those seriously interested in the topic, it provided an excellent reference and in the author's own words, "a beginning".' -- Canadian Home Economics Journal, Vol 32 No 2, Spring 1982
`...one has a goldmine of information, both in the book itself and in the bibliographical references.' -- Family Relations, January 1983
`...provides and excellent discourse on the reasons for adolescent pregnancy, especially those repeated in succeeding generations, and the reasons for increased risks...This is an excellent synthesis of a great deal of research in the fields of child abuse, high-risk parenting, child development, maternal-infant bonding, and teenage pregnancy and parenthood.' -- Journal of Adolescent Health Care, Vol 5 No 2
