For courses in Cross-Cultural Development
An interdisciplinary exploration of cross-cultural human development throughout the lifespan

Lives Across Cultures: Cross-Cultural Human Development focuses on cultural similarities and differences in human development throughout the world and across the lifespan, while emphasizing the links between theory, research, and practical applications. Presented chronologically by topic, Harry Gardiner’s Sixth Edition combines the most current information with engaging vignettes, stories, and personal experiences in his highly praised, scholarly yet conversational, and often humorous writing style.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

Lives Across Cultures: Cross-Cultural Human Development, Sixth Edition is also available via Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.

Author Biography

Harry Gardiner is Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse with degrees from American International College (BA), the University of Hawaii (MA), and the University of Manchester, England (PhD), where he met his wife, Ormsin, of Thailand. Married in both Buddhist and Christian ceremonies, he taught at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok for two years. He and his wife have four children and six grandchildren.
He has engaged in training, teaching, and research in Europe, Asia, and the United States. Dr. Gardiner was a charter member of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology and served as president of the Society for Cross-Cultural Research. In addition to publishing articles in a wide variety of journals and participating in national and international meetings, he has co-authored a number of chapters on cross-cultural topics for other books.
He enjoys watching the development of his six grandchildren as they navigate a much more culturally diversified world than he, or his children, experienced at their ages.
