Human Development with Lifemap CD-ROM and Powerweb with CDROM and Other
Synopses & Reviews
The new edition retains the extensive cross-cultural and multicultural coverage, the innovative pedagogical learning system, and the balance between research and real-life applications that have made this text a favorite of students and professors alike. In the warmly-written and engaging style that is their hallmark, Papalia, Olds, and Feldman continue to provide a chronological view of lifespan development. The tenth edition expands the coverage of cultural and historical influences on development, features the latest research, and introduces marginal callouts integrating the LifeMap Student CD-ROM with key concepts in the text.
