You're not married and you have no children. You rent rather than own your home. You've changed jobs twice in the last three years. If this sounds like you, according to politicians, pundits and opinion makers in the media, you're an adultescent - an apolitical, commitment-phobic slacker who's failed to pass the tests of adulthood. But the question no-one is asking is why the traditional rituals of adulthood are being delayed or rejected outright. Kate Crawford enters this debate as a refreshing and welcome voice of reason, giving the broader economic, political and cultural contexts for these enormous social shifts. If you're sick of being written off as not worthy of engaging with the world, then 'Adult Themes' is an inspiring call to arms for those who know that being an "adult" goes way beyond mortgage, marriage and loyalty to a multinational.
