From Late Adolescence to Young Adulthood. By David Dean Brockman, M.D. Madison, CT: Int. Univ. Press, 2003. 320 pp.

Review by:
Aaron H. Esman

The ever-increasing globalization and technical complexity of world civilization continues to prolong the process of achieving full adult personality organization and social status, not only in the industrialized world, but in developing societies as well. Thus, it is understandable that Dr. Brockman, who some years ago published a well-received book on late adolescence, has now found it desirable to follow that with a new volume that extends the scope of his psychoanalytic explorations into the phase of young adulthood, or what the social psychologist Kenneth Keniston called “youth”—a loosely defined period sometimes extending well into the thirties, as graduate education becomes increasingly normative, stable and fulfilling employment increasingly elusive, and parenthood increasingly delayed.

Brockman
