Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1197–1198. Reviews the book, Adulthood and Aging by Jeanne L. Thomas (1992). This is a solid first-edition addition to the choice of textbooks available for teaching undergraduate students about aging. Thomas writes primarily from her experience teaching students majoring in psychology, sociology, social work, and nursing. Her goals were (a) “to provide an adequate theoretical and empirical background to serve as a foundation for further study of adult development at the graduate level or for student research” and (b) to “address practical issues to an extent that prompts students to consider empirical work in terms of its potential application in their own lives or in professional settings designed to meet the needs of older adults and their families.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
