Summary

A new edition of the popular developmental psychology textbook. Taking a chronological approach,it uses a broad scientific framework to present development as a fusion of biological, social, and psychological processes interacting in the medium of human culture. The authors illustrate the role each factor plays, and how they combine in diverse cultural contexts to yield developmental similarities and differences. The new edition has been completely revised to make the book more up-to-date, accessible, and student-friendly.
