## Numerical analysis and parallel processing: lectures given at the Lancaster Numerical Analysis Summer School, 1987This book analyzes the challenges, benefits, coping strategies, problems, and accomplishments associated with the midlife experience of women. Ten chapters present the state of research (and correct longstanding myths) regarding significant aspects of middle-aged women's lives. The book bridges a major knowledge gap in the feminist-psychology literature. It balances optimism and realism about older women s lives and younger women s futures. |
