Göttingen: V&R Unipress. ISBN 978-3- 89971-328-2 With “Adolescence and Computers”, Astrid Dinter ventures into a subject area that has until now received little or no attention in Practical Th eology: the importance of computers and computer technology for the development of identity in young people.
