Can anyone recommend a good article or book updating me on anthropology's
current understanding of the Teen years? How well does Mead's old view
stand or is there now reason to think "troublesome Teens" are universal?
I've got a friend who doesn't understand why I don't think it is inevitable
that the Teen years must be hard on parents & kids.
