Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 832–833. Reviews the book, Life-Span Developmental Psychology: Introduction to Research Methods by Paul B. Baltes, Hayne W. Reese, and John R. Nesselroade (see record 1988-97084-000). In terms of the stated purpose of the authors, this is an excellent book. It is clearly written and raises many of the fundamental methodological issues in developmental and behavioral research, especially the difficult problems involved in the measurement and explanation of the interacting processes in developmental change that result as individuals grow and develop in an everchanging social context over time. This book is written as an introductory text in research methods for college juniors, seniors, and beginning graduate students in the behavioral and social sciences, with particular emphasis on issues in the study of child and human development.
