Overview

Adult Development and Aging offers professors and students a clear, comprehensive and current account of the salient issues and concerns that dominate the field of adult development. Hoyer and Roodin employ an interdisciplinary, process oriented perspective to show students the past, present, and future of our understanding and research in adult development.

In this thoroughly-revised new edition, Hoyer and Roodin continue to provide cutting edge material in an accessible manner for undergraduates. With a new theme of developmental bioculturalism running throughout, the authors also present the most balanced and comprehensive coverage of biological, health, cognitive, and social areas.
