Renowned experts in adult development and aging, Manfred Diehl and Hans-Werner Wahl synthesize decades of psychological research into a comprehensive volume that considers later life in the context of lifespan development, social and physical environmental factors, and historical-cultural influences. In so doing, they review important research on cognitive functioning, behavioral processes, personality and identity development, and overall well-being in middle- to late-adulthood.

Diehl and Wahl's framework helps readers better understand that the development process is influenced by many facets and can take many different trajectories. Through this contextualized perspective, they examine the influence that previous life experiences, beginning in early childhood, can have on the aging process in older adults. This includes social relations, technological developments, societal perspectives on aging, and education. The authors also examine the challenges and opportunities of aging, using a strengths-based approach to promote a diverse, nuanced understanding on successful, healthy aging.

Chapters also conclude with dialogues from other experts in the field, offering multiple different perspectives on the research.
