Human Development in Adulthood is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of adult development in a number of areas both personal and societal, from mental and physical health, to economic and social conditions. Variables including race, gender, economic status, and political and religious affiliation are considered in the discussion of such human issues as - love and marital relations - economic concerns, including employment and living conditions - violence in its various forms, including crime and war - aging and death. The numerous illustrations, chapter summaries, and glossary will prove especially useful to students.
