Publisher Comments:

The Developmental Psychology Textbook, a companion to the Developmental Psychology reader, breaks new ground by providing undergraduates with a precise and attainable presentation of developmental psychology across a wide array of issues now at the forefront of current research. Written by an

international team of experts, this valuable text examines child development from infancy to adolescence taking a broad, chronological, topic-based approach. Chapters are organized into five sections: life processes and infancy; cognitive and representational growth; atypical development; the

influence of others; and adulthood. This organization is key because it allows the text to be read in any order, depending on the needs and emphasis of the course being taught. In addition, a range of features, such as boxed extracts, discussion points, seminar questions, and suggestions for

further reading, are provided to assist both class-based and individual work. Undergraduates studying psychology, education, and cognitive science will find this text an exemplary guide to the world of developmental psychology.

Synopsis:

"Eugenie Grandet" (1833) is one of the the earliest and most famous novels in Balzac's "Comedie Humaine". Eugenie's emotional awakening brings her into direct conflict with her father, whose cunning and financial success are matched against her determination to rebel.

Synopsis:

'Who is going to marry Eugénie Grandet?'

This is the question that fills the minds of the inhabitants of Saumur, the setting for Eugénie Grandet (1833), one of the earliest and most famous novels in Balzac's Comédie humaine. The Grandet household, oppressed by the exacting miserliness of Grandet himself, is jerked violently out of routine by the sudden arrival of Eugénie's cousin Charles, recently orphaned and penniless. Eugénie's emotional awakening, stimulated by her love for her cousin, brings her into direct conflict with her father, whose cunning and financial success are matched against her determination to rebel.

Eugénie's moving story is set against the backdrop of provincial oppression, the vicissitudes of the wine trade, and the workings of the financial system in the aftermath of the French Revolution. It is both a poignant portrayal of private life and a vigorous fictional document of its age.

Synopsis:

One of the earliest and most famous novels in Balzac's Comédie humaine, Eugénie Grandet portrays the fall of the Grandet household. In its record of financial acuity, the vicissitudes of the wine trade, and the social and economic consequences of the Revolution, we find a vigorous fictional document of the age.
