Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 601–602. Reviews the book, Lifespan human development by Sueann Robinson Ambron and David Brodzinsky (Eds.) (1979). This comprehensive new text on the human life span highlights the major developmental changes from birth to death. The book adopts a life-stage oriented approach, tracing changes in physical, cognitive, and psychosocial aspects of human development at each major stage of life. The book provides a broad, contemporary view of human development, an appreciation of the interplay between developmental processes and changing sociohistorical contexts, and an emphasis on the practical implications of the research literature. This text provides a valuable tool for teaching introductory courses in human development at the undergraduate level. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
