Description:
Word from the Publisher
In this examination of teenage pregnancy in America, Kristin Luker argues persuasively that teen childbearing is not so much a cause as an indicator of poverty, with its roots in a number of behavioral and economic trends.


Word from the Publisher
Introducing readers to the young women who are the object of so much opprobrium--teenage mothers ("babies having babies")--this powerful book goes behind the stereotypes, the inflamed rhetoric, and the flip media sound bites to reveal the complex reality and troubling truths of teenage mothers in America today.
