Publisher's Comments

"Leo B. Hendry is one of the foremost developmental psychologists of his generation. His diverse range of interests have included studies on young people's involvement in competitive sports, investigations into teacher and pupil relations in school, adolescents' leisure pursuits and their family relations, parenting styles, youth workers and mentoring, youth unemployment, and adolescent health behaviours. His research interests now include work on ageing and retirement. Development Transitions across theLifespan is the first collection of Hendry's works, and essentially joins the dots to provide an overarching perspective on lifespan development through a dynamic systems theory approach. Underpinned by empirical research, this collection of journal articles and book chapters is linked by a contemporary commentary which not only contextualises each piece within today's research climate, but builds to provides an unorthodox, comprehensive but above all compelling perspective on human development from childhood to old age. Leo B. Hendry's research output has been significant and influential. This is an important book that will provide students and researchers in developmental psychology not only with an opportunity to view his contribution holistically, but in connecting his range of research interests, provides a new contribution to our understanding of lifespan development in its own right"--
