1931 printing (1st ed., 1904). xxi, 589 pp, 1 leaf (ads); vi, 784 pp. Original cloth, top edges gilt. Spines slightly rubbed. Signature of former owner on each flyleaf. Else a Very Good+ set. 'Every psychologist studying adolescents today knows of G. Stanley Hall's Adolescence because its publication in 1904 is widely viewed as the beginning of the field of adolescence as an area of scholarly and scientific research. However, few psychologists have actually read Hall's work. They know him mainly as a caricature, the deluded man from the old days who is responsible for the myth that 'storm and stress' is a universal and inevitable part of adolescent development. As this story goes, later a more enlightened and scientific adolescent psychology showed Hall to be wrong. It is true enough that Hall asserted that adolescence is inherently a time of 'storm and stress' when all young people go through some degree of emotional and behavioral upheaval before establishing a more stable equilibrium in adulthood. However, Hall's view of storm and stress is far more complex than he is usually credited, and in fact his view accords remarkably well with current findings in our scientific psychology (Arnett, 1999). In any case, the storm and stress idea occupies only a few of the 1300-plus pages of Adolescence. The two volumes cover an amazing range of topics, from growth of the limbs to sexuality to cognitive development to psychopathology, and much more. . . . Hall's Adolescence contains research, commentary, and speculation on nearly every imaginable topic pertaining to adolescent development (ages 14 24, in Hall's conception). Some passages read like they might have been published in a 21st century psychology journal article, with information and insights that are strikingly similar to what we believe today about adolescents. Other passages contain assertions so different from our current understanding of adolescent psychology that today's readers are likely to find them jarring, peculiar, even ludicrous. . . . Hall anticipated a surprising number of findings of modern psychology, including some of the most recent scholarship. A century after the publication of Adolescence, many of Hall's insights still seem valid, many of his conclusions have endured, and he continues to be regarded as the founder of a field that now includes thousands of researchers around the world. Who among us can hope to fare so well?' (Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, 'G. Stanley Hall's Adolescence: Brilliance and Nonsense', History of Psychology, 2006, Vol. 9, No. 3, 186 197).
