A thought-provoking examination of how explanations of social and moral development inform our understandings of morality and culture. A common theme in the latter part of the twentieth century has been to lament the moral state of American society and the decline of morality among youth. A sharp turn toward an extreme form of individualism and a lack of concern for community involvement and civic participation are often blamed for the moral crisis. Turiel challenges these views, drawing on a large body of research from developmental psychology, anthropology, sociology as well as social events, political movements, and journalistic accounts of social and political struggles. Turiel shows that generation after generation has lamented the decline of society and blamed young people. Using historical accounts, he persuasively argues that such characterizations of moral decline entail stereotyping, nostalgia for times past, and a failure to recognize the moral viewpoint of those who challenge traditions.

The premise of this book is that individuals and societies have an inexorable urge to morally develop by challenging the assumptions of the previous generation in terms of what is right and wrong. The focus is on the nature and functional value of conflicts and challenges to the dominant moral and social values framework. Through this analysis, individuals develop moral character through conflict with their local authority figures, including parents. The moral structure of societies evolves through intergenerational challenges to and contradictions with the dominant social order. The book is divided into three parts to help frame this discussion: *Part I directly takes up the issue of resistance as it occurs at a cultural level, and the implications of such resistance for moral education and socialization. *Part II explores the normative forms of adolescent resistance and contrarian behavior that vex parents and teachers alike. *Part III brings back the issue of societal structure and culture to illustrate how negative features of society--such as racial discrimination and economic disparity--can feed into the construction of negative moral identity in youth posing challenges to moral education. Taken together, this collection presents a rich counterpoint to the pictures of moral growth as the progressive sophistication of moral reasoning or the gradual accretion of moral virtues and cultural values. It will benefit those in developmental, social, and cognitive psychology, as well as sociology, political science, and education.

Morality in context is a timely topic. A debate between philosophers and social scientists is a good way to approach it. Why is there such a booming interest in morality and why does it focus on context? One starting point is the change in the sociostructural and sociocultural conditions of modern societies. This involves change in the empirical conditions of moral action and in the social demand on morality. As these changes are accounted for and analyzed in the social sciences, new perspectives emerge that give rise to new ways of framing issues and problems. These problems are best addressed by way of cooperation between philosophers and social scientists. As Habermas (1990) has pointed out in a much cited paper, philosophers depend on social science to fill in the data they require to answer the questions raised by philosophy in its "placeholder" function. The reverse also holds true: Social science needs the conceptual clarifications that philosophy can provide. With respect to morality, such mutual interchanges are of particular importance the contributions to this book show convincingly.

The volume aims to shift the foundation of youth conflict study from the more typical focus on maturation, behavior, and personality to a characterization of youth as participants in society. It also expands the analysis of youth development to include societal problems such as political instability, unequal access to material resources, racism, and social injustice. Offering new insights about the interdependent spheres of conflict involving young people, this groundbreaking, international compilation describes processes of a violent world rather than of violent youth.

-- Die aktuelle Ausgabe des Jahrbuchs Jugendforschung beschäftigt sich im ersten seiner Schwerpunkte mit der Bedeutung der Jugendphase für die spätere Erwachsenenbiografie. Auf der Basis von - teilweise mehrere Jahrzehnte umspannenden - Längsschnittstudien wird empirisch der Frage nachgegangen, wie aussagekräftig Daten aus der Jugendphase tatsächlich für das spätere Leben als Erwachsener sind. Während mit Blick auf die Jugend in der Öffentlichkeit immer wieder problematisches Verhalten Jugendlicher - wie etwa Gewalt, Alkohol oder Risikoverhalten - akzentuiert wird, setzt das Jahrbuch Jugendforschung in seinem zweiten thematischen Schwerpunkt einen Kontrapunkt zu dieser Debatte, indem es sich explizit mit erfolgreichen Jugendlichen auseinander setzt. Hierzu gehören u. a. (hoch- )begabte Jugendliche, oder Jugendliche, die trotz schwieriger Ausgangsbedingungen hohe Bildungserfolge erreichen. -- In der ersten Ausgabe 2001 hatte das Jahrbuch namhafte JugendforscherInnen gebeten, über den Stand und die Zukunft der Jugendforschung nachzudenken. In der aktuellen Ausgabe, 10 Jahre danach, nehmen einige der damaligen AutorInnen dazu erneut Stellung.
