Middle adulthood: a lifespan perspective
This edited book is a publication devoted to the long neglected issue of development during middle adulthood. It adopts a truly lifespan approach, by considering not only development between 40 and 65 years of age, but also the impact that adolescence and young adulthood can exert on midlife, and the continuity from middle age into old age. It covers a broad range of topics, from the development of the self to cognitive changes to genetic influences. All chapters provide empirical data, based on major longitudinal studies on adult development, with an international coverage. The book also provides a unified perspective, in that midlife is not to be considered a period of mere stability as has often been proposed, but evinces large variability both across individuals and across psychological functions; all chapters demonstrate the necessity of adopting a multidimensional view on development. It represents a synthesis of the current work on midlife development from leading researchers in the field.
