A survey of human development from the prenatal period through to late adulthood. As in previous editions, the work utilizes multidisciplinary examples and research to convey the breadth and complexity of the study of lifespan development in a chronological format. Vander Zanden draws material from psychology, biology, sociology and anthropology in order to apply and explicate the myriad of developmental issues that confront us throughout everyday life. Critical and creative thinking is encouraged to avoid the dilemma of rote memorization. In this new edition, there is greater cross-cultural coverage throughout the text, and information on gender and minority issues is integrated in several sections. The book features new coverage of important findings in lifespan development such as: AIDS in children and adults, Carol Gilligan's research on self-estemm in adolescent girls, genetic screening and counselling, AIDS and drug babies, language acquisition, and so on. There is also new, practical and informative boxed material on real-life applications.
