A new entry for the growing topically-organized segment of this market, "Child Development: A Topical Approach" presents pivotal research and theories in a more readable, accessible style than books currently available. This first edition teams Diane Papalia's teaching and writing expertise with Ruth Feldman's professional writing, and it introduces Dana Gross - a child development researcher and professor at St. Olaf's College in Minnesota. Applauded by reviewers for its combination of research coverage with applications and real-life examples, this new text also includes Papalia's hallmark of superior coverage of cross-cultural and social policy topics, and a new emphasis on the history of child psychology.
