The Oxford Handbook of Human Development and Culture provides a comprehensive synopsis of theory and research on human development, with every chapter drawing together findings from cultures around the world. This includes a focus on cultural diversity within nations, cultural change, and globalization. Expertly edited by Lene Arnett Jensen, the Handbook covers the entire lifespan from the prenatal period to old age. It delves deeply into topics such as the development of emotion, language, cognition, morality, creativity, and religion, as well as developmental contexts such as family, friends, civic institutions, school, media, and work. Written by an international group of eminent and cutting-edge experts, chapters showcase the burgeoning interdisciplinary approach to scholarship that bridges universal and cultural perspectives on human development. This "cultural-developmental approach" is a multifaceted, flexible, and dynamic way to conceptualize theory and research that is in step with the cultural and global realities of human development in the 21st century.

About the Author:


Lene Arnett Jensen, PhD, is Associate Professor of Psychology at Clark University. She is the originator of the "cultural-developmental" theoretical approach for scholarship on human development. Her research addresses moral, civic, and cultural identity development in the context of globalization. A native of Denmark, Dr. Jensen has resided in a number of countries, including Belgium, India, and France. She lives in Massachusetts, USA, with her husband and twin children.

Review:


"Lene Arnett Jensen has achieved the seemingly impossible - this handbook covers many cultures, all periods of the lifespan, and basically all major developmental tasks. And yet, in spite of the multitude of viewpoints represented, through careful editing she has accomplished harmony in diversity by providing a stimulating new 'cultural-developmental approach' informative for all topics. ... The Handbook will help to form the coming generation of scientists with new theories and evidence on human development necessary for our globalized world."
--Rainer K. Silbereisen, PhD, Research Professor and Director, Center for Applied Developmental Science (CADS), University of Jena, Germany, and Editor, International Journal of Psychology


"This Handbook promises to be exciting for the diversity of perspectives it juxtaposes of cultural contexts and of disciplinary and theoretical frameworks within which to explore the nexus of human development with culture. Lene Arnett Jensen's introduction provides a characteristically insightful foretaste of the complexities to be addressed. The chapter authors have published some of the finest scholarship in the field and are based in an impressively diverse range of societies around the world."
--Robert Serpell, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of Zambia


"In this remarkable book, the contributors address fundamental questions about how humans develop into cultural beings. Lene Jensen has assembled a team of world-leading researchers who explore the nature of human development from an unusually broad and integrative set of perspectives. The book forcefully makes clear that a rich understanding of human development needs to consider the diverse array of conditions within which people are raised."
--Steven J. Heine, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia


"This Handbook can be considered a landmark in the history of the discipline. ... A noteworthy feature is the presentation of both culture-inclusive and interdisciplinary perspectives. The volume will be useful to scholars and students from several social science disciplines."
--T.S. Saraswathi, PhD, retired Senior Professor in Human Development and Family Studies, Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India


"This interesting book covers the intersection of culture and human development throughout the lifespan. It is a great resource for researchers and clinicians alike." --Doody's


"This volume would be most useful to scholars who would like a concise and current overview of one of the topics, as an introduction to the area of human development in cultural perspective, or as a starting point for more in-depth study. Its major contribution is its breadth with respect to cultural influences on child and adolescent development... Most libraries, however, would find this handbook to be essential for their collection. For a state-of-the-art overview of human development in its universal and culturally specific forms, one needs to look no further than The Oxford Handbook of Human Development and Culture." --PsycCRITIQUES
