Examining lives in context : perspectives on the ecology of human development ( Book )
15 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 645 libraries worldwide
This groundbreaking book extends the work of Urie Bronfenbrenner whom Melvin Kohn described as "the quintessential person for spurring psychologists to...realize that interpersonal relationships are embedded in the larger social structures of community, society, economics, and politics." In Examining Lives in Context, over two dozen distinguished scholars show how Bronfenbrenner's ecological theory and research led them to focus their own work on problems crucial to "real life" - the complex, rapidly changing world that challenges researchers to design inquiries in often dramatic new ways. By taking into account the importance of time, place, process, and life course, the interdisciplinary contributors to this volume forge a new path in previously uncharted territory in human development
The state of Americans : this generation and the next by Urie Bronfenbrenner( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 579 libraries worldwide
As they point out, politicians and the media typically focus on single issues, positing simplistic solutions for complex problems - crime, for example - solutions that can't work because they don't take into account how other problems affect crime rates. In this book, the authors provide not only the relevant facts and figures, they also highlight the interrelationships among these factors. They show, for example, how education and changing family structure affect poverty rates and how all three might affect the level of crime in America. Finally, this is the first book that doesn't just show us what the current data is - it also shows how today's economic and social trends will serve to determine the fate of future generations. Anyone who wants the real facts on how Americans are faring today and what we can expect in the future will want this book

Ecologia dello sviluppo umano by Urie Bronfenbrenner( Book )
8 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in Italian and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Punto di convergenza tra le scienze biologiche, psicologiche e sociali, l'ecologia dello sviluppo umano studia l'interazione individuo-ambiente e, in particolare, il progressivo adattamento tra un organismo umano che cresce e l'ambiente circostante. Tale orientamento è contraddistinto dalla preferenza per l'osservazione naturalistica e l'indagine sul campo rispetto agli esperimenti di laboratorio. Questi ultimi rischierebbero di trasformare lo studio dello sviluppo umano nella "scienza dello strano comportamento di bambini collocati in strane situazioni insieme a strani adulti per il più breve tempo possibile". (Alice)
