qHuman Development in Adulthood is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of adult development in a number of areas both personal and societal, from mental and physical health to economic and social conditions. Working under the premise that such development continues throughout the life span, Lewis R. Aiken charts the evolution of human decision making and the growth that results from it. Variables including race, gender, economic status, and political and religious affiliation are considered in the discussion.q qThis thorough discussion of adulthood is complemented by numerous graphs, tables, boxed-off inserts, chapter summaries, and a glossary of terms. These added features make this text both complete and easily accessible to students and professionals in the various subdisciplines of psychology, education, medical specialties such as gerontology, as well as the social sciences in general.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
