Summary

With skill and enthusiasm, respected authors and noted researchers Robert V. Kail and John C. Cavanaugh tell a comprehensive and engaging story of life in HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFESPAN VIEW, SECOND EDITION. Experts in child development and adulthood and aging, respectively, Kail and Cavanaugh relate the fascinating story of the human lifespan. Their streamlined approach eliminates the redundancy of describing the lifespan via the traditional organizational structure used by many texts for the course. Instead, Kail and Cavanaugh employ a four-part structure that covers early childhood, the school years, the working/raising children years, and later life. This accurate and lively depiction of the developmental process helps students make better sense of our most intriguing and intricate journey. . .life. Providing full coverage of child and adult development within a modified chronological framework, Kail and Cavanaugh help students make the connections between chapters by emphasizing the dynamic interplay of biological, psychological, and social forces on development. This integrated biopsychosocial approach not only address the needs of many instructors, but also helps students understand how each element of development impacts the others. And unlike other lifespan texts which devote 40% or less of their coverage to adulthood and aging, HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFESPAN VIEW devotes as much coverage to adulthood and aging as to childhood and adolescence-all in 15 manageable chapters.
