Emerging Adulthood

The Winding Road from the Late Teens through the Twenties

Jeffrey Jensen Arnett

  • Jeffrey Jensen Arnett identifies and labels, for the first time, this period exploration, instability, possibility, and a sustained sense of being in limbo
  • Shows that emerging adults are particularly skilled at maintaining contradictory emotions, i.e. they are confident while still being wary
  • Indispensable reading for anyone wanting to understand the face of modern America
  • Expresses ideas about emerging adulthood that represent a new theory about what is going on in the lives of young people from age 18-29
