Book summary: Providing up-to-date research and coverage of all aspects of developmental psychology, this text is aimed at mid-level of the market. Hoffman and Paris, scholars in social development and cognitive development respectively, offer a balance between psychological theory and "real-life" applications. New features to this edition include: the interaction between heredity and environment, attachment, peer relations and adolescence; increased emphasis on the child as an active part of socialization, through his or her influence on the environment and interpretation of it; expanded coverage on adolescence, to reflect recent social change and new research that realizes that puberty is a major milestone in human development; and continued emphasis on adulthood, incorporating the chapter on death into the discussion of social development during late adulthood.
