Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0205355048, Hardcover)
Readers are provided with an especially clear and coherent understanding of the sequence and underlying processes of child development, and the effective topical organization emphasizes to readers the way in which all of the domains of development relate - physical, cognitive, emotional, and social-throughout the book. Berk revised the book offering readers a heightened emphasis on the interplay between biology and environment, expanded coverage of culture, and an enhanced focus on education, health, and social issues. While carefully considering the complexities of child development, Berk presents classic and emerging theories in an especially clear, engaging writing style, with a multitude of research-based and real-world examples. For anyone working with children, or those in the fields of child development, child psychology and childcare.
