Overview

Developmental Science: An Advanced Textbook provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the field for advanced students. Readers of this textbook will obtain a new perspective on developmental science, a greater appreciation of the varied phenomena that constitute developmental science, and a fundamental grounding in developmental science itself. The text furnishes inclusive developmental perspectives on all substantial areas in psychology. The substantial revisions of chapters from previous editions and the new chapters included in this fifth edition underscore the dynamic and exciting status of contemporary developmental science.

In addition, chapters in the book:
*demonstrate that the developmental perspective transcends and enriches any narrow focus on particular points in the life span;
*introduce and review the perspectives, traditions, and approaches of developmental science; and
*exemplify the relevance of developmental science through reviews of history, theory, and substance of the subdiscipline.

The text can be used at the advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate levels.
