Ed. by Daniel K. Mroczek and Todd D. Little.
Aimed at researchers and advanced students, this text provides a broad overview of the field of personality development, which is currently enjoying a burst of research activity. Editors Mroczek (Purdue U.) and Little (U. of Kansas) have compiled nearly two-dozen papers that examine personality development across the entire life span from a variety of theoretical perspectives.
