For courses in Life-Span Developmental Psychology, Human Development and Multicultural Education in departments of Psychology and Education. This is the first text/reader of its kind to focus on the issues of life span development from a multicultural perspective. This reader explores the impact of cultural influences on development within each of the life stages and dimensions of development. The text utilizes a non-Eurocentric approach. It introduces students to several theories, research studies and applications and examines traditional research and modifications as a result of diverse cultural approaches. Human Development in Multicultural Contexts offers an important and significant alternative to other human development texts that omit cultural variables. It helps to provide a balance to other courses with respect to resources, fresh perspectives, and techniques.
