Coming of Age in America Description

What is it like to become an adult in twenty-first-century America? This book takes us to four very different places―New York City, San Diego, rural Iowa, and Saint Paul, Minnesota―to explore the dramatic shifts in coming-of-age experiences across the country. Drawing from in-depth interviews with people in their twenties and early thirties, it probes experiences and decisions surrounding education, work, marriage, parenthood, and housing. The first study to systematically explore this phenomenon from a qualitative perspective, Coming of Age in America offers a clear view of how traditional patterns and expectations are changing, of the range of forces that are shaping these changes, and of how young people themselves view their lives.
