Balanced coverage of the entire life span is just one thing that distinguishes Human Development: A Life-Span View, Third Canadian Edition. With its comprehensive and applied, yet succinct, coverage, the text has proven its ability to capture students' interest, accentuating discussions on the emerging trends, issues, forces, and outcomes that make us who we are by placing them within a Canadian context and focusing on the Canadian experience. A modified chronological approach traces development in sequential order from conception through late life, while also dedicating several chapters to key topical issues. The authors continue to provide theoretical and empirical foundations that enable students to become educated, critical interpreters of developmental information. A blend of basic and applied research, as well as coverage of controversial topics and emergent trends, demonstrates connections between the laboratory and life.
