Elder, Glen H. Jr. : University of North Carolina
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 Center, the Center 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.
"The reissuing of Children of the Great Depression, in an expanded version on its 25th anniversary, calls for a celebration in the scholarly community. When this book first appeared in 1974, it had a profound impact on sociology, social psychology, human development, and social history, by introducing the life course framework to the study of lives and social change. Now a widely acclaimed classic, Children of the Great Depression is an extraordinarily imaginative work, which demonstrates the power of the life course framework for understanding the interaction between individuals and families with the grand processes of social change. This new edition dramatically expands the study of lives to encompass the impact of two major world events, depression and war, and the changes resulting from them on the same group of people. The new edition will continue to serve as a model and inspiration for research on the life course in the United States."
--Tamara K. Haraven, University of Delaware
"In this volume, Glen Elder gives us two classics in one. He does so by bringing together in one place two closely-related bodies of his work, widely-separated in their original date of publication, but highly relevant today both for advancing developmental research, and for addressing the critical problems that confront American society at this point in our history."
--Urie Bronfenbrenner / Jacob Gould Shurman Professor Emeritus of Human Development and of Psychlogy, Cornell University
