About the Author:

Urie Bronfenbrenner was Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Human Development and of Psychology at Cornell University.

Review:

The book's purpose: to offer a new theoretical perspective for research in human development. Bronfenbrenner achieves this goal superbly. . . The synthesis offered in this book is unique...The effect is a perspective on the field of human development that is exciting in its possibilities...This is a usable and practical book...a powerful teaching text...It conveys masterfully the mystery and excitement of scientific investigation. (Contemporary Psychology)

The Ecology of Human Development "should generate more productive research work and more sensible thinking about family policy than we have had in the past...Bronfenbrenner is headed in exactly the right direction for directing research and guiding public action. That is an impressive accomplishment. (Psychology Today)

Bronfenbrenner's particular observations are thoughtful and provocative...[The book] provides a welcome antidote for the current spate of premature conclusions about what is and is not important in development. (Science)
