500    "This book started with a double session at the annual 
       meeting of the American Anthropological Association in 
       November 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. Although not all 
       participants in that session could join in the edited 
       publication, their papers at that session and our 
       discussions of all our papers over meals and emails 
       enriched our understanding of how anthropologists can 
       approach the study of adulthood."--Page vii.

520    Over the past decade, complaints about an inability to 
       achieve adulthood have rung out around the world. Young 
       people across the globe, burdened with debt and 
       unsatisfactory job prospects, are struggling to establish 
       households, marry, and, perhaps most significantly, "feel"
       grown up. For them, achievement of adulthood has become 
       increasingly elusive. Elusive Adulthoods poses the 
       question "What is adulthood?" and examines how the field 
       of anthropology has come to overlook this meaningful life 
       transition. Through diverse case studies, contributors 
       explore a variety of means by which adulthood can be 
       recognized, such as negotiated relationships with others 
       and as a form of upward class mobility. Contributors also 
       grapple with the difficulties that come from a sense of 
       having missed full adulthood - perhaps due to rapid social
       change or reluctance to embrace the necessary 
       subordination to job and family. In each case, changing 
       political and economic factors form the background for 
       generational experiences and understandings of what it 
       means to reach adulthood as globalization dictates changes
       to traditional rites of passage. -- from back cover.
