The general purpose of Adolescent Psychology: The African Perspective is to provide a comprehensive overview of selected facets of Adolescent Psychology as a field of study. Very few theories are exclusively concerned with the period of adolescence- even though most see adolescence as the pivotal period in the developmental progression. The book asks the controversial question whether adolescence exists or is just a Eurocentric invention. Second the Afro - conceptualization of Adolescence is debated in various schools of thought and the applicability of the various theories to Afro - Education. The book presents perspectives that span the whole continuum of Psychology in Africa but with a cosmopolitan touch and is valuable to University students in the Behavioral Sciences - both Psychology and Philosophy as well as Education.
