'There is a great need for this book as there is little else that is up-to-date in the area of Adolescent Sexuality. The writing is coherent, easy to follow, and well crafted, and the range of topics covered is excellent.' - Shirley Feldman, Director for the Curriculum on Children and Society, Stanford University. 'This is essential reading for anyone interested in young people. It explains current theory well, identifying important areas for future research. The writing style is accessible and difficult concepts such as coercion and manipulation are explained well. The authors draw on key research and have ensured that they are up to date with contemporary findings.' - Jenny Pearce, School of Health and Social Sciences, Middlesex University.
