Product description


"This is the premier volume on infant development with the breadth and depth that far overreaches the competition. Simply put, it’s the one book that anyone interested in infant development should have in their collection." – David H. Rakison, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

"This go-to book offers a comprehensive, provocative account of the theories, methodologies, scientific advances, and challenges that characterize the field of infancy. It strikes the ideal balance between contemporary approaches and historical tradition, basic research and practical application, and conceptual rigor and reader accessibility."- Catherine S. Tamis-LeMonda, New York University, USA

"Development in Infancy tackles the large questions that keep resurfacing: nature-nurture, continuity and stability of development and the significance of development as well as the implications of basic research for education, public policy and medical and social care."Dieter Wolke, University of Warwick, United Kingdom

"My students will appreciate the state-of-the-art coverage of all facets of infant development. The increased emphasis on practical applications and social policy will be extremely useful to professionals. Instructors and students will appreciate the new teaching web resources. It is an indispensable introduction to the field of infancy." – Diane Poulin-Dubois, Concordia University, Canada

“I have seen … other infant development books, but none that I would consider instead of this one. … It is the only text I’ve found with the style, scope, and depth of presentation I believe is appropriate for this course.“ – Harriet Darling, The Pennsylvania State University, York Campus, USA

“I have found [this text] to be the most comprehensive, thorough book for a grad level infant and toddler class. I thoroughly enjoy it for myself as well. It is probably the book I have held onto the longest. …I have been using it since it came out. … The authors write very clearly.“ – Elizabeth M. McCarroll, Texas Woman’s University, USA
