This hugely popular textbook has established itself as the topically organized textbook teachers and researchers trust for the most up-to-date perspectives on child and adolescent development. 

The authors, each a well-known scientist and educator—have earned that trust by introducing core concepts and impactful discoveries with an unparalleled integration of theory, cultural research, and applications. All this is delivered in a style that is authoritative yet immediately understandable and relevant.

The new edition includes a robust and carefully curated video program in LaunchPad, called out within the margins of the text.
