    DescriptionFrom career development to retirement, and from marriage to bereavement, psychological development is a never-ending process. Adulthood is a time of change and transformation, and presents many unique challenges and opportunities. Combining classic studies and cutting-edge research, Oliver Robinson's Development through Adulthood will guide you through this rich and rewarding subject. Key features: * Uniquely covers qualitative as well as quantitative research; * Individual voices bring theories to life by providing insight into real life experiences; * Cross-cultural perspectives and alternative perspectives provide examples from beyond the UK and US, offering an important counterbalance to western research; * Real-world application features highlight important intervention strategies. Development through Adulthood provides a unique interdisciplinary approach, making it invaluable reading for anybody studying human development, gerontology or an applied social science. Academically rigorous and elegantly written, it's the perfect guide to classic and current research in adult development.

    Review quote
    "The best evidence-based account I have read about what it is like to develop through adulthood." - Dan P. McAdams, the Henry Wade Rogers Professor of Psychology, Northwestern University "This book should be read by everyone who would like to get a comprehensive view of modern psychological theories of adult development." - Dr. Eeva Kallio, University of Jyvaskyla and University of Tampere, Finland, and President of the European Society for Adult Development "This book is a refreshing new addition to the texts currently available in the area. It fills a much needed gap and will allow tutors and students to cover important and non-traditional aspects of development in an accessible and interesting way. It has been a pleasure to read." - Dr Christopher Barnes, University of Derby, UK "An excellent book, superb in places...This could become the best lifespan book on the market." - Dr John Lambie, Anglia Ruskin University, UK
