  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 9042900288


Human Development Book Description :

The book examines classic aspects of development afresh from a cultural angle--childrearing, social relations, interdependence and autonomy, developmental transitions across the lifespan, gender roles, attachment, and learning and cognitive development"--Dust jacket....
