Book Description

March 17 2011 0195432983 978-0195432985 1
The only Canadian text of its kind, this new topical introduction to child development employs the unique perspective of evolutionary psychology as a jumping-off point into the discipline. All the key areas of developmental psychology are covered, including its history, foundational theories, and core research methodologies. The author provides comprehensive treatment of perceptual, cognitive, language, moral, and social developmental processes, while at the same time engaging throughout with issues raised by the interaction between nature and nurture. The result is a text that covers the key topics in the field in a fresh, modern, and exciting fashion.

Product Description


"I view this textbook as better than the competitors. I'm excited about the overall organization and treatment. . . . The author raises studies, research, points with a reason-the book takes research seriously. One advantage of the book is that it is completely unlike any other introductory book for developmental psychology." --Ori Friedman, University of Waterloo

"Child Development: Perspectives in Developmental Psychology discusses the most recent research on cognitive, social, and gender development and makes it clear that the current state of developmental psychology is no longer whether some ability is shaped by nature or nurture, but rather how it is shaped jointly by both . . . I am really excited about this textbook." --FangFang Li, University of Lethbridge
