Summary
Presents the history of geropsychology in the words of many of the pioneers who developed research, scholarship, and educational programs in the subject during its formative phase. The editors urged the writers to describe the development of their careers so that others might gain an understanding of the conditions and the influences that attracted their interest and that provided support or resistance to their ideas and efforts. In addition to the purely intellectual account of their careers, the authors were encouraged to tell details of their lives that characterize their career pathways between pitfalls and good fortune, depressions and wars, antipathies and attractions, and the influential stereotypes and social lab effects. This book also presents material that helps to give insights into how creative and productive lives develop and flower. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
