Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungCovering major issues in adolescent sexuality in the United States from colonial times to the present, this work provides an account of how adults, from policymakers to police and parents, have attempted to intervene in the sexual lives of adolescents, and how adolescent sexuality has been and continues to be a subject of social concern and control.
Pressestimmen"Accessible to most readers while academically solid, this anthology examines changes in attitudes towards adolescent sexuality, particularly in the United States during the twentieth century. Five essays survey theories on sex, statutory rape laws, teenage pregnancy, sex education, and media depictions of teenagers. The second half of the book reprints excerpts from books on sexual theory, court cases and legislation establishing obscenity laws and the age of consent, and 14 posters produced in 1918 and 1922 to educate youth." - Reference & Research Book News
