"Best" Sociologists Weigh in on Transition to Adulthood
I'd like to add to New York Times columnist David Brooks' short list of "country's best sociologists" in his op-ed today, "The Odyssey Years." UPenn sociologist (and fellow Council on Contemporary Families member) Frank Furstenberg is the bomb on this one. And for a wider look at the latest thinking about the expanded transition to adulthood, check out what the good folks over at the Network on Transitions to Adulthood have to say about it all. I imagine you'll find a more rounded view of the phenomenon--and not just Brooksian calls of "hook ups!" and "no more church!"
