Erik Erikson (1902-1994) was one of the most eminent and prolific psychologists of the 20th century. Over his long career he published a dozen books, including classics such as DEGREESIChildhood and Society; Identity, Youth, and Crisis; DEGREESR and DEGREESI Young Man Luther DEGREESR . He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1970 for his biography DEGREESIGandhi's Truth DEGREESR. It was also in 1970, when he retired from Harvard University, that Erikson began to rethink his earlier theories of development. He became increasingly occupied with the conflicts and challenges of adulthood--a shift from his earlier writings on the "identity crises" of adolescence. DEGREESL DEGREESL For the past twenty years, Carol Hoare has written extensively on various aspects of Erikson's work. She has been aided by access to Erikson's unpublished papers at Harvard, as well as cooperation with Joan Erikson, the psychologist's wife and longtime collaborator. By reconstructing Erikson's theory of adulthood from his unpublished papers, Hoare provides not only a much-needed revision of Erikson's work, but also a glimpse into the mind of one of the 20th century's most profound thinkers.

Important new work. May 22, 2002
This articulate work is a new essential to an adult development library and a pleasure to read. Dr. Hoare presents, in an unambiguous manner, insights on Erik Erikson that provide a much needed connected perspective of this foremost adult development theorist. Carol Hoare has skillfully utilized historical reference to craft from Erikson's unpublished papers a meaningful perspective of the complex and seemingly contradictory published writings of Erikson. My own understanding and appreciation of psychosocial adult development has expanded ten-fold. Erikson on Development in Adulthood: New Insights from the Unpublished Papers is a must-read for all who teach, study, or administer education for adults. This book is also wonderful addition to classes on human development that can be used to enhance student critical thinking.

The ideas of the great master of human psychosocial development, Erik Erikson, have been studied throughout the twentieth century.

Professor and author Carol Hoare unselfishly dedicated 12 years of her professional life to gain a thorough comprehension of Erikson's perspective of adult development. Concisely synthesized and written with great eloquence, this book can be useful in any academic course related to the study of human development, as well as the general public, for the purpose of enjoying and attaining another brilliant perspective of human psychosocial development.
