Explaining the nature of theories in the field of child development (including why theories are useful and why there are multiple theories), Thomas' highly respected book covers the widest range of theories of any text currently available. Thomas suggests a variety of ways to compare theories to help guide the search of child development theorists who may be dissatisfied with existing explanations of how a child grows up.

Review:

Thomas' book has always been my preferred text for childhood theories in development...An effective starting point to acquire the base for advanced theoretical analysis.

I have always enjoyed using this book. Finely crafted, clear, reasonable, and judicious...The creative advantages of each theory are discussed rather than only the weak or negative points...Chapter One is wonderful, offering a fine overview of theories and a thoughtful section an standards for reviewing theories.

Thorough, yet concise, discussions of theory that could be overly complex...Extremely well written...Strong introductory sections that set up the chapters that follow in a clear and coherent manner.
