Oxford University Press; 1St Edition | December 31, 1987 | English | ISBN: 0195049977 | 304 pages | PDF | 16 MB
In classrooms and in living rooms, in research institutions and on Capitol Hill, teenage pregnancy is one of the most controversial public issues of our day. Yet after all the investigation and government effort, what is really known about the problem of adolescent pregnancy and how to deal with it? And what is the role of the social scientist and historian in a public issue of this kind? In this study, Maris Vinovskis–a prominent demographic historian and a participant in both Carter's and Reagan's Presidential initiatives on teenage pregnancy–sets these questions within a historical framework and discusses a host of current issues and policy considerations.
