Taylor, Ronald D., Ed.; Wang, Margaret C., Ed.
Noting that much is known from research and practice regarding what works to promote resilience of children and families in a variety of high-risk life situations, this book considers the impact of culture, economy, employment, poverty, family structure, and social policy on parenting, child development, education, and the life success of youth.

Flanagan); (2) "Stressful Experiences and the Psychological Functioning of African-American and Puerto Rican Families and Adolescents" (Ronald D. Taylor and others); (3) "The Economic and Psychological Dynamics of Nonresident Paternal Involvement" (Paul Florsheim); (4) "Another Look at the Elephant: Child Care in the Nineties" (Deborah Lowe Vandell, Kim Dadisman, and Kathleen Gallagher); (5) "Maternal Employment Influences on Early Adolescent Development: A Contextual View" (Jacqueline V. Lerner and E. Ree Noh); (6) "Maternal Employment: Effects of Social Context" (Lois Wladis Hoffman); (7) "The Impact of Divorce on Adjustment during Adolescence" (Christy M. Buchanan); (8) "The Myths and Realities of African-American Fatherhood" (Edmund W. Gordon); (9) "Make Room for Daddy II: The Positive Effects of Fathers' Role in Adolescent Development" (Marc A. Zimmerman, Deborah A. Salem, and Paul C. Notaro); (10) "Profiles in Resilience: Educational Achievement and Ambition among Children of Immigrants in Southern California" (Ruben G. Rumbaut); (11) "Agency and School Performance among Urban Latino Youth" (Leslie Reese, Kendall Kroesen, and Ronald Gallimore); and (12) "Cultural Explanations for the Role of Parenting in the School Success of Asian-American Children" (Ruth K.
