Further Details
Abstract This book consists of 26 articles and introduces the reader to different fields, methods and aspects of life course and generation research. It is published on the occasion of Martin Kohl's 60th birthday and focuses on his research program. Most of the authors of the articles are personally involved and committed to his research program. Despite some critical remarks mentioned in this review, altogether this book is enriching to the field. It is also appealing for nonexperts because even the basic concepts of life course research are discussed.
