Summary

This chronologically-organized text is less expensive and briefer than most of the Human Lifespan texts. Its numerous examples drawn from education, nursing, and psychology make the content relevant to students from a variety of majors and backgrounds, while a highly praised study guide integrated into the text promotes and reinforces conceptual understanding. The new edition includes increased material on cognitive development and expanded coverage of culture.


New Features

  • The text features the latest research, including new or expanded information on evolutionary psychology, cloning, neuronal communication, cohabitation, and Maslow's work on stress.
  • Increased coverage of culture includes research on cultural variations in the birth process, cultural identity in adolescence, and a new introduction on the early years of Mahalia Jackson.
  • Chapter One has been reorganized, to immediately engage students in the material. A new section, "Changing Views of the Lifespan," provides a historical overview of views on human development and highlights how the ideas have changed throughout the years.
  • Several new chapter openings offer even more effective introductions to the chapters' content.
