Rezensionen
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.)
