Sinopsis: How do adolescents in greatly divergent societies see and experience the world? As the first comparative study of adolescence, this book takes an anthropological approach to understanding adolescence in the rapidly changing area of the Pacific Islands. The contributors explore coming-of-age in the tradition of Margaret Mead: the biological basis of teenage rebellion, the role of the adolescent in Pacific Island cultures, and teenagers' influence as agents of change.Insights into local views of the life cycle and adolescents illustrate the dramatic influence of culture on teenagers. The contributors start with the basic tenet that adolescence is a unique phase in the life span because of its simultaneous changes in physical maturation, psychological adjustment, and social relations: the approach demands that adolescence be viewed in the light of broad historical processes.The essays examine how biology, culture, and adolescence intersect, and how social change affects the adolescent experience. They address the rise of intersex interaction in traditionally segregated communities, the problems of cross-generational differences in education for maintaining traditional authority structures, and the structural effects of personal choice in contracting marriages.The book is necessary reading for all those who wish to understand the adolescent in cultural and historical perspective. It is ideal for anthropology courses dealing with social change: courses in medical or biological anthropology; psychology and anthropology, courses focusing on development and the life cycle, and any course addressing the nature versus nurture question.

From the Publisher: "This exemplary collection - finely honed, rich in ethnographic cases and theoretical import - explores adolescence both as a biosocial landmark in the life of the individual and as a prefiguration of changes in the adult society. A landmark in itself, th is volume is essential reading for anyone interested in adolescence, youth culture,' and social change in the Pacific - and elsewhncyclopedia articles, and chapters in books. He is the author of Guardians of the Flutes (1981); Intimate Communications: Ero tics and the Study of Culture (with Robert J. Stoller, 1990); and Same-Sex, Different Cultures (1997). He is the editor of Rituals of Manhood: Male Initiation in Papua, New Guinea (1982); Ritualized Homosexuality in Melanesia (1984, 1993); Gay Culture in America (1992); and Sexual Cultures, Migration, and AIDS (1997).
