Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 602. Reviews the book, Psychological development: A life-span approach by Paul Henry Mussen, John Janeway Conger, Jerome Kagan, and James Geiwitz (1979). This substantial new text of development from birth to death highlights two issues that will be of increasing concern. One is an attempt to provide an understanding of development beyond childhood and youth per se, while the other is the growing sensitivity to the complexities of a process of development that evolves against a background of a changing sociohistorical context. This book will provide an important text for those teaching undergraduate courses in developmental psychology, broadly conceived. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
