New horizons in developmental theory and research

"This inaugural volume by the new editors-in-chief surveys new theory and research in child and adolescent development. The volume brings together cutting-edge scholars who report on promising work in their diverse specialty areas. The chapters are arranged into three parts. The first part examines the cultural dimension of development and includes proposals for new methods and theories in work with diverse cultural groups. The second part highlights how children and adolescents develop in and interact with multiple contexts, including family, friends, media, and civic institutions. The third addresses biological and environmental bases of emotional and cognitive self-regulation. Two introductory chapters by the incoming and outgoing editors-in-chief discuss broad trends in the field of child and adolescent development, including the pressing need for synthesis across diverse domains of study such as biology and culture."--Jacket
