Summary

This chronologically-organized, child and adolescent development text features an integrative approach to the study of development with a distinguished emphasis on multi-cultural issues. Through this integrative framework, Owens explores the dynamic interplay of psychological, biological, sociological, and anthropological factors as they contribute to the developmental process. Through this multi-disciplinary lens, Owens presents the major theories and research of the field and provides strong links to the application of these ideas to daily life and career. Owens further expands the integrative theme to include a respectable and fair treatment of issues related to diversity and culture by "integrating" coverage throughout the text as well as through a separate chapter (2). This inclusiveness provides a uniquely modern, scholarly and complete view of the child and adolescent development process.
