From the Publisher
Kathleen Stassen Berger's distinctive text presents theory, research, practical examples, and controversial issues in a way that inspires students to think about development--and about the individual's role in the community and the world. The combination of Dr. Berger's distinctive strengths--rigorous academic background, a focus on current research, a lively and personal writing style, and a commitment to students--make this textbook a teaching tool without parallel. Our understanding of child development has been rapidly developing in recent years, and the sixth edition of Kathleen Berger's text includes and integrates these new developments--especially in the areas of neuroscience, adolescence, culture and education. The Sixth Edition also features extremely current and authoritative research citations, more Observation Quizzes on graphs and tables, as well as on photographs and new biological and anatomical art.
