There are an estimated 1.2 billion young people aged 10-19 years worldwide, the largest generation of adolescents in history with more than 80 per cent living in developing countries, particularly in urban areas. The 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child established the rights of young people to services such as education, health, recreation and justice, yet there is a collective failure of countries to fulfill and protect these rights. This publication looks at a wide range of developmental, health, educational and political issues that need to be addressed in order to nurture the potential of young people to participate fully in their societies throughout the world.

Sexuality in Adolescence: Current Trendsconsiders the latest theory and research on adolescent development, focusing on sexuality as a vital aspect of normal, healthy maturation. Biological changes are discussed within a social context, and the latest research is presented on key issues of our time, including changes in teenage sexual behaviours and beliefs, sexual risk-taking, body dissatisfaction, sex education, teen pregnancy and abortion. Susan Moore and Doreen Rosenthal explore the roles of parents, peers, the media, social institutions and youth culture in adolescent sexual adjustment. This volume covers topical issues ranging from the role of the internet in adolescent romance to the pros and cons of abstinence education versus harm minimization. Issues, such as whether there are male-female differences in desire, sexuality, motives for sex, and beliefs about romance are examined, along with the question of whether a sexual double standard still exists. Maladaptive aspects of sexual development, including sexual risk-taking, disease, unplanned pregnancy, and sexual coercion are also covered. This fully revised and updated second edition also addresses the crucial issues of: Sexual minority adolescents The social determinants of adolescent sexuality Sexual health as opposed to sexual illness. This book aims to promote sexual well-being, and argues for the importance of the adolescent period as a time for engendering healthy sexual attitudes and practices. It will be valuable reading for students in the social and behavioural sciences interested in adolescent development and the topic of sexuality and for professionals working with young people.
