The present examination utilizes life history theory to explain how adolescence may have been transformed in recent times by mass education. The researchers review existing literature and also look at 186 pre-industrial societies from the Standard Cross-Cultural Sample to establish a baseline as to how adolescence was viewed and marked. The findings reveal adolescence is an essential period for biological and sociocultural development in the past as well as the present.
