9780131400399: Cognitive Development

Explores the psychology of children with updated, revised and expanded coverage of the field. Providing you with the latest research findings and opinions of distinguished authorities, it covers four areas: history, theory and methods; infancy and developmental psychobiology; cognitive development; and socialization, personality and social development. Included are integrative summaries, new perspectives and insights, critical analyses and explications of deficiencies in existing data and theoretical orientations. Going beyond merely a simple encyclopedic review of accumulated knowledge--the author offers a source book that encourages sophisticated thinking about fundamental issues, the formulation of questions and hypotheses and, in the long run, more good research.
