Synopsis

In this highly acclaimed work first published in 1974, Glen H. Elder Jr. presents the first longitudinal study of a Depression cohort. He follows 167 individuals born in 1920?1921 from their elementary school days in Oakland, California, through the 1960s. Using a combined historical, social, and psychological approach, Elder assesses the influence of the economic crisis on the life course of his subjects over two generations. The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this classic study includes a new chapter on the war years entitled, ?Beyond Children of the Great Depression.?

Glen H. Elder Jr. is Howard W. Odum Distinguished Professor of Sociology and research professor of psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he codirects the Carolina Consortium on Human Development and manages a research program on life course studies at the Carolina Population centre, the centre for Developmental Science, and the Institute of Aging. He has also served on the faculties of the University of California at Berkeley and Cornell University.
