(from the cover) This book is a lively and accessible introduction to the psychology of human development. The authors, who all have extensive experience in teaching and research, have selected topics that will appeal to new students of this subject and have presented them in a way that demonstrates their relevance to everyday life. This fully revised second edition includes a new chapter on gender development and gender differences, while the material on adult life and growing older has been expanded. New material has also been added on: developmental stages; cultural variations; early social interactions; the measurement of intelligence; and Vygotsky's theory of cognitive development.
