Additional Information

Infancy: Infant, Family, & Society is the fifth edition of Alan Fogel's classic text on development in infancy. This edition features a new publisher, a complete re-design for greater visual appeal, and a price that is 30% lower than the previous edition.

This text spans the four-year period in the human life course between conception and 36 months. The book's scientifically-based coverage is balanced by clear and accessible writing and the inclusion of both theoretical and applied topics.

Taking a systems perspective, this book places the infant in the context of interpersonal relationships with caregivers, other family members, hospitals, child care centers, and peers and with respect to the social policies and cultural practices that shape the course of these interpersonal relationships. A central theme of the book is the development of individual differences: the biological factors and environmental factors that combine to create unique developmental pathways for processes such as temperament, cognitive growth, and attachment.

I used this for one of my classes and liked it so much that I kept it. I even gave a copy to a friend of mine. I really liked the approach. It is easy to read but interesting. The author gets a little preachy in some areas, and I didn't really like some of his exercises. Overall, it's a great reference text.
This is a book required for a course I'm taking. I have nothing but good things to say about the seller. The condition of the book was as described and the shipping was prompt at a reasonable cost. it's just that this book renders a very spiritual and emotional experience into dry scientific terms. But then, it IS a textbook!
I'm a family and human development major so I'm used to seeing various textbooks for human development. I have to say this is one of the best. It provides a more in depth look at development and I'm learning so much.
