Personality development in adulthood by Lawrence S Wrightsman( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using three broad theoretical perspectives (early-formation theory, stage theory, and dialectic analysis), Personality Development in Adulthood provides highly contrasting answers to these and other questions. Each perspective is described, the methods used to evaluate them are considered, and the quality of supportive evidence is examined. The book then applies concepts and findings from each perspective to numerous aspects of adulthood: occupational and career shifts, sex-role development, marriage and other intimate relationships, sexual behavior, changes in values, and attitudes toward death and dying. Examples of personality in such diverse figures as Luther and Nixon serve to illuminate and clarify the various methodologies presented

Adult personality development : theories and concepts by Lawrence S Wrightsman( Book )

25 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stimulating book and its companion volume, Adult Personality Development: Theories and Concepts, reflect an expansion of the coverage of Wrightsman's initial book, Personality Development in Adulthood. The luxury of greater length has permitted an exploration of new topics, including the use of a wider variety of sources including scholarly articles and books, biographies, and case studies. Increased attention is devoted to creativity in adulthood, to learning and memory, to marriage stability, and other topics. The book provides a focus for a Psychology of Adulthood course that encourages students to look at the evolving nature of their own lives. Particular attention is given to developing an extensive set of references (over 700 in this volume) as an aid to scholars. -- Publisher description

The Miranda ruling : its past, present, and future by Lawrence S Wrightsman( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: Where did Miranda go wrong? The purpose of this book is to identify and describe four problems with the implementation of the Miranda decision and to suggest remedies in order to have it achieve its original purpose. The four problems identified in the book are: 1. The justices, in placing restrictions of the questioning of suspects, limited these rights only to those suspects who were "in custody." The term "in custody" is vague-legally vague as well as vague to the layperson. It permits the police to question suspects without giving them their Miranda rights in those settings where it is unclear whether custody is present. 2. The Miranda warnings may not be fully understood by many suspects. There is no country-wide standardization of what is said; there are literally thousands of different versions of "the" Miranda warnings in use by different police departments in the United States. 3. Police training manuals, while recognizing the right to a "Miranda warning," have developed many ways to circumvent giving the warnings or ignoring a response in which a suspect does decide to remain silent or ask for an attorney. 4. In the 40 years since the Miranda law was established, the Supreme Court and lower courts have made decisions eroding their application. Can the original goal of the authors of the Miranda law be salvaged? This book examines the state of interrogations and the state of the law before the Miranda decision was made, the purposes and nature of the decision, and proposes recommendations for reinstituting the original goals
