Ben-Amos argues instead that while the maturation process was prolonged in some cases, it was short and intense in others, and that variations were due to complex mental, social, and economic causes. Paying close attention to differences introduced by gender and social and geographical contexts, Ben-Amos focuses on numerous aspects of youths' lives as they related to maturation.

Drawing on urban and court records, as well as on 74 contemporary autobiographies, Ben-Amos vividly recreates the experience of growing up in early modern England.
