Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A psychologist, researcher, teacher, women's advocate, and author, Neugarten has been called a pioneer in the field of adult development and aging by American Psychologist. This collection is a compilation of her most significant works from over 35 years (1958-1994). From the beginning, Neugarten's studies have focused on challenging stereotypical views of aging by demonstrating that the competencies and needs of aging persons cannot be based on chronological age. Her contributions to the field of adult development and aging have influenced change in many public policy decisions regarding benefits and provisions for older persons. The presentation of her work here is well organized and the sequence logical, so that the reader will find her research easy to follow. Each paper is referenced and, as an added bonus, a chronological bibliography of all Neugarten's works is included. Highly recommended as a very readable and necessary interdisciplinary addition for all academic and large public libraries.?Elizabeth Goeters, DeKalb Coll. Learning Resources Ctr., Dunwoody, Ga.

Dr. Neugarten was a futurist and visionary studying thee aging population and laying the groundwork for understanding the different phases of the longest developmental life stage we encounter. Definitely worth reading.
