Product Description


?This volume contains an expansion of the material dealt with in the first edition plus extensive updating that incorporates significant, recent research. It presents an integrative view of the field of adult development as well as an orientation to research and practice for interested professionals. The material is organized around a topical approach that deals with processes within several major areas of human functioning. . . . The integrative theme for this approach is the concept of identity. . . . Effective use is made of diagrams and case studies. Chapter references are extensive and current. The appendix deals with developmental research strategies and is valuable for readers beginning research in this field. The book is for advanced undergraduates, as it requires some sophistication on the part of the reader. An excellent addition to academic libraries, it can serve as a valuable reference and source book.?-Choice
