This comprehensive handbook provides an overview of key theoretical perspectives, concepts, and methodological approaches that, while applied to diverse phenomena, are united in their general approach to the study of lives across age phases. In surveying the wide terrain of life course studies with dual emphases on theory and empirical research, this important reference work presents probative concepts and methods and identifies promising avenues for future research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This weighty collection of 34 research studies comprehensively examines the 'life course,' defined as '...the age graded socially-embedded sequence of roles that connect the phases of life.' The text's strenghts: comprehensiveness and comparative and historical perspectives. Highly recommended. Reference collections, upper-division undergraduate and above." (S.D. Borchert, Lake Erie College, CHOICE)

"Many of the current luminaries or up-and -comers in life course research are included. On balance this is a terrific book. And at 728 pages is is brimming with insights, syntheses, and reference material. (Just for fun, it weights 3 lbs. 13 oz). This book is well worth the price and will be a welcome addition to any library." (Timothy J. Owens, Purdue University, Contemporary Sociology: A Journal of Reviews.)
