Children of the Great Depression by Russell Freedman( Book )

42 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this 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 these Californians over two generations. The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this classic study includes a new chapter by the author which explores how World War II and the Korean War changed the lives of these Depression youth and a younger birth cohort (1928-29)."--Jacket

Families in troubled times : adapting to change in rural America by Rand Conger( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turbulent decade of the 1980s began with financial calamity in several sectors of the United States economy, from automaking to agriculture. The rural Midwest experienced its worst economic decline since the Depression years. Thousands of farmers lost their operations, and the small rural communities that serve agriculture often changed from prosperous business centers to struggling villages with many empty buildings and boarded-up storefronts along their main streets. Families in Troubled Times examines the plight of several hundred rural families who have lived through these difficult years. The participants in the Iowa Youth and Families Project, the subjects of the present study, include farmers, people from small towns, and those who lost farms and other businesses as a result of the "farm crisis." The book traces the influence of economic hardship on the emotions, behavior, and relationships of parents, children, siblings, husbands, and wives. The results of the study show that although economic stress has a powerful adverse effect on individuals and families, countervailing social influence can help to blunt these negative processes and to assist in the repair of the personal and interpersonal damage they produce
Working with archival data : studying lives by Glen H Elder( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The number of longitudinal data archives is growing almost daily, yet no resource exists to help understand the relationship between research questions and archival data--until now. Drawing on a single project, the Lewis Terman Study at Stanford University, the authors illustrate how to use the model-fitting process to select and fit the right data set to a particular research problem. Employing a step-by-step approach, this handy volume covers the measurement of historical influences, the adaptation of existing coding schemes to temporal patterns that are characteristic of life records, and the recasting of archival materials to illuminate contemporary questions that the data were not designed to answer."--Pub. desc
Examining lives in context : perspectives on the ecology of human development( Book )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book extends the work of Urie Bronfenbrenner whom Melvin Kohn described as "the quintessential person for spurring psychologists to ... realize that interpersonal relationships are embedded in the larger social structures of community, society, economics, and politics." In Examining Lives in Context, over two dozen distinguished scholars show how Bronfenbrenner's ecological theory and research led them to focus their own work on problems crucial to "real life"--The complex, rapidly changing world that challenges researchers to design inquiries in often dramatic new ways. By taking into account the importance of time, place, process, and life course, the interdisciplinary contributors to this volume forge a new path in previously uncharted territory in human development

Children of the land : adversity and success in rural America by Glen H Elder( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Children of the Land, the authors ask whether traditional observations about farm families - strong intergenrational ties, productive roles for youth in work and social leadership, dedicated parents, and a network of positive engagement in church, school, and community life - apply to 300 Iowa children who have grown up with some tie to the land. The answer, as the authors show, is a resounding yes. The study includes families involved in full-time or part-time farming, displaced farm families, families in which the parents grew up on a farm, and non-farm families - the comparison group."--Jacket

Historical influences on lives & aging( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume focuses on the ways in which the life course of individuals is affected by the historical contexts in which they live. Editors Schaie and Elder, along with contributors, explore the following pivotal concerns: how historical changes, such as immigration, affect the life course; the impact of historical transitions within societies, such as the collapse of the Soviet Union; the linking mechanisms, such as how coming of age in wartime affected young people during World War II. One of the goals of this volume is to help readers gain a better understanding of the immediate and long-range effects of historical events on lives and aging. To stimulate thought and discussion, each chapter is followed by two insightful commentaries"--Provided by the Publisher
