This comprehensive handbook provides an overview of key theoretical perspectives, concepts, and methodological approaches that, while applied to diverse phenomena, are united in their general approach to the study of lives across age phases. In surveying the wide terrain of life course studies with dual emphases on theory and empirical research, this important reference work presents probative concepts and methods and identifies promising avenues for future research. Included are sections on history and cross-national variability, normative structuring, movement through the life course, transitions in the life course, turning points, connections between life phases, methodology, and the future of the life course. A major reference work and a seminal text, it is essential reading for social scientists studying phases within the life course, social psychologists in sociology and psychology, demographers and academics in the field of the life course as well as students in these disciplines.

Sharon Preves is the Chair of the Sociology Department and an Associate Professor at Hamline University. She is interested in the structure of social privilege based on gender, power, and normative position. Her research focuses include medical ethics, gender, and sexuality. Jeylan T. Mortimer is a Professor at the University of Minnesota. Her current research is centered on the "Youth Development Study," supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which examines pathways through the transition to adulthood, mental health and attainment, and how parental trajectories from adolescence to adulthood influence their children.
