From infancy through to school age and beyond, most children are in
constant contact with an array of social influences. Home life,
education, community and the media all have some part to play in a
child's development. In this absorbing book, the authors discuss
the ways such diverse cultural settings impact on behaviour and how
children are shaped by the world around them. They examine
development from both a cultural and cross-cultural perspective,
drawing on case studies, to illuminate theoretical insights.
Students of both developmental and cultural psychology will find
this to be the perfect starting point from which to investigate
this fascinating topic further.
