About the Author

Wim Meeus, Emeritus Professor of Adolescent Development at Utrecht University and of Developmental Psychology at Tilburg University, is an internationally recognized leader in the study of adolescent development.


"I love this book; it is a fantastic description of the important discoveries and the challenging questions when studying adolescence. It describes relatively complex patterns in an understandable way, and it is unique in its kind. A book like this was not yet available and it is a must-read for everybody who is interested in the dynamics of adolescence. Wim Meeus is an authority in this research field." - Eveline Crone, Leiden University, The Netherlands "In this important book, Wim Meeus provides a comprehensive and integrative review of his internationally renowned longitudinal research on adolescent personality, self, and identity development and evaluates the findings in light of different models of adolescent development. This book is a significant achievement, and his conclusions will move the field forward." - Judi Smetana, University of Rochester, USA "During the 6-8-year span of adolescence, much happens with regard to identity, personality, parent-child relationships, friendships, and problem behaviors. What makes this book unique is that it takes the time perspective on these issues seriously. Today it is the only available textbook on adolescent development that systematically uses longitudinal data to arrive at new theoretical insights." - Hakan Stattin, OErebro University, Sweden
