Summary: The authors hope to achieve at least four major goals with this volume. First, to present you with the latest research and thinking to help you better appreciate the complex interactions that characterize human development in infancy and childhood. Second, in light of the feedback they received on previous editions, they have placed greater emphasis on important contemporary issues and challenges, exploring topics such as understanding development in the context of current societal and cultural influences. Third, attention is given to articles that also discuss effective, practical applications. Finally, they hope that this anthology will serve as a catalyst to help students become more effective future professionals and parents. To achieve these objectives, they carefully selected articles from variety of sources, including scholarly research journals and text as well as semiprofessional journals and popular publications. Every selection was scrutinized for readability, interest level, relevance, and currency. - Preface
