'This is the one book that I recommend as authoritative on life-span identity development. Written in a lively style with examples both numerous and apt, it helps practitioners and social planners to become current with research findings, and it provides researchers with both the necessary background and intriguing new ideas to advance their work. University instructors will find it invaluable as a text for a seminar in identity development as well as a highly useful supplement for courses in life-span development (adolescence through late adulthood) and personality theory. Kroger has written that rare book that is highly informative, useful, and a pleasure to read' - James E. Marcia, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada This volume highlights key features of identity development from early adolescence and through late adulthood and provides a valuable resource for university students as well as human services professionals.
