This third edition of the book offers a current and comprehensive presentation of the main theories of developmental psychology. The text places the major theories of development in historical and contemporary context, giving readers breadth as well as depth of understanding. New to the third edition: an exciting new chapter that integrates Vygotsky's theory, contextualism, ecological psychology, and cultural psychology; new material on Piaget in the last few years before his death; new views of strategies, capacity, and microgenetic changes; new discussion of issues of domain specificity in information-processing, biological, and Piagetian theories; extensive updating throughout.

The book provides a parallel structure within the chapters that gives students a framework for comparing theoretical approaches. Each major theory is discussed in terms of general orientation, mechanisms of development, and its strengths and weaknesses.
Four central issues of development are addressed in each chapter: Human Nature, Qualitative vs. Quantitative Development, Nature vs. nurture, and What Develops.
