The Third Canadian Edition of Santrock's Life-Span Development text meets the needs of Canadian students and instructors with its thorough incorporation of Canadian research and Canadian developmental contexts. Students benefit from balanced coverage of all stages of the life-span, Santrock's trademark accessible writing style, and strong coverage of cultural diversity and the Canadian mosaic.

A built-in pedagogical system encourages students to preview and review key concepts as they read. Chapter opening vignettes, Spotlight boxes on Research and Policy, Sociocultural Worlds of Development boxes, and Critical Thinking boxes reinforce and enhance the text's emphasis on both theory and practice in the field of life-span development.

Anne MacKenzie-Rivers recently retired from a rewarding career as teacher and administrator at George Brown College. Her interest in psychology centers on social psychology, human growth and development, and contemporary research on the brain. Throughout her career, she has enjoyed the design and delivery of a diverse range of courses and curriculum modules, such as the Politics of Language and Cross-cultural Communication, geared to incorporating writing across the curriculum. As an administrator, she worked closely with faculty to support the development and delivery of general education, science, math, and English courses, as well as innovative programs with the College’s School of Labour and Aboriginal Centre. Her degrees are in English and educational psychology. Anne enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Kwan Ho Leung enjoys teaching Psychology and English—especially infancy, childhood, and grammar—at George Brown College. He has graduate degrees in psychology and economics and certificates in teaching ESL and adults. In his leisure time, Kwan Ho does paid copywriting and also volunteers for worthwhile causes. He enjoys reading, eating, and travelling—he has maintained a streak of annual visits to Europe since 2001!

Thomas Malcomson has taught at George Brown College for the past 25 years. He has a Master’s Degree in Experimental Psychology and a Ph.D. in History. His areas of interest in psychology centre on social psychology, gerontology, and the experience of bereavement and grief. Dr. Malcomson has taught courses in introductory, social, and developmental psychology, death, dying, and bereavement, and the history of eugenics. Thomas lives in Toronto with his wife Peggy, and their son, Nathan.
