A truly valuable reference book covering most important aspects of (human and) child development with a particular emphasis on the cultural perspective. Each chapter has clear learning objectives and framing questions at the beginning, and in the end, a brief conclusion section highlighting most important aspects covered in the chapter. A great resource for anyone studying or interested in psychology.
"Clever, scholarly and approachable explanations of the importance of culture and society in a child’s development. This book makes an important contribution for both students and researchers."
"Finally, a developmental textbook that portrays the ubiquitous role of culture in the developing child."
"Packer has written a culturally informed and philosophically sophisticated text. It is essential reading!"
I look for textbooks that give a cultural perspective to human development. This textbook does that and is a reasonably priced book.
An interesting and accessible text to extend students' knowledge and understanding of child development from a cultural perspective, with a wide range of examples to encourage a critical analysis of traditional theory. An impressive accompanying website provides further food for thought.
Good all round informative assessable information to support ITE
