Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 59–60. Reviews the book, Adolescent Stress: Causes and Consequences edited by Mary Ellen Colten and Susan Gore (1991). The volume is drawn in large part from a 1987 conference on adolescent stress, social relationships, and mental health Edited books run the risk of being scattered and uneven and failing to clearly advance knowledge in a field. Happily, Colten and Gore have avoided these unfortunate pitfalls. Through skillful grouping of the chapters and excellent editors' overviews, they have produced a coherent volume, one that certainly enriched the knowledge of the field. The most important accomplishment of this book is the merging of two different perspectives adolescent developmental psychology and stress and coping. The chapters are stimulating and thoughtful, the editors successfully integrate complex ideas and maintain continuity within the volume. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
