Whereas several recent books have examined the economic, social, and somatic depletions of later life, Gutmann's shows how the alleviation of the role constraints of active parenting often liberates unused or blunted psychological potentials. The result is a normal androgynya reclamation of "those aspects of self that were once disowned inwardly, though lived out externally, vicariously, through the spouse." This book should provide a new impetus for life-span research and a more positive redirection for developmental geropsychology. For the informed reader and specialized collections.William Abrams, Portland State Univ. Lib., Ore.
