In 2000, psychologist Jeffrey Arnett coined the term “emerging adulthood” to describe the ever-evolving age between the late teens and mid-twenties.

On the tenth anniversary of its publication, Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens to the Twenties has been re-released in a new edition covering all of the developments in media use, social class issues and the other distinctive problems of this life stage.
