Product Description

Review

"Slater and Bremner s Introduction to DevelopmentalPsychology is a terrific new textbook. It will likely becomethe preferred choice for undergraduate courses in DevelopmentalPsychology. Leading researchers in their respective areas ofexpertise have prepared the chapters, and while multi–authoredtexts can sometimes suffer from a lack of unity, this one has beenskillfully edited so as to provide a coherent narrative. Otherstrong features include: (1) use of major theories as organizers offactual information, (2) excellent coverage of relevant empiricalwork with a nice balance of classic experimental findings reviewedalongside the latest research findings, and (3) sophisticatedinsights on the question of how the our knowledge of childdevelopment can be applied to improve the lot of children in theareas of parenting, schooling, and treatment of childhooddisorders." Professor Paul Quinn, Washington and JeffersonCollege, Washington

"an informative textbook that undergraduates and postgraduateswould benefit from ... It is a definite choice for my readinglist." Janine Spencer, Brunel University, The Times HigherEducation Supplement, March 26 2004

"In this new Introduction to Developmental Psychology richlyillustrated chapters cover infancy, childhood, and adolescence in aconcise and stimulating way. In the first section of the book,developmental theory and methodology is discussed with specialemphasis on the complex nurture–nature transactions shaping thechild s development. In a closing section educational andclinical implications of developmental research are presented.Leaders in the field document the tremendous advances made indevelopmental psychology that now is coming of age. ThisIntroduction is truly international in presenting not only Americanbut also European contributions to developmental science.Undergraduate students are supported in their study of this book bythe lists of key–concepts, and the overview with which each chapterstarts. Anecdotes about children, graphs of empirical results,pictures of experimental apparatus, and a set of discussion pointsat the end of each chapter facilitate the students understanding of developmental achievements. The combined effortsof specialists in their respective fields lead to an Introductionwhich at the same time is a balanced and comprehensivestate–of–the–art of current developmental psychology." ProfessorMarinus Van IJzendoorn, Leiden University

"If you are looking for an introduction to developmentalpsychology that is rigorous, thoughtful and comprehensive, look nofurther. Two distinguished British psychologists – Alan Slater andGavin Bremner have assembled an international set of experts tobring you the latest and the best research from virtually everycorner of this exciting field. Students new to the subject – andteachers who have taught it for many years – will both enjoy thisinnovative text." Paul Harris, Harvard Graduate School ofEducation

"The book looks to be singularly easy to teach from. Thediversity of psychology has been coped with by a selection ofresearch–oriented writers. Manageable chunks of interestinginformation have been organised through firm editorial control."Norman Freeman, Professor of Psychology, University ofBristol

One of the core reading books for my psychology course. I admittedly haven't read as much of it as I should have, but what I have read has been easy to understand. This book was a recommendation by several lecturers at my uni, so I'd also recommend it to anybody studying developmental/social psychology.
