Chronologically organized, Lifespan Development: Lives in Context offers a unique perspective on the field by focusing on the importance of context—examining how the places, sociocultural environments, and ways in which we are raised influence who we become and how we grow and change. Author Tara L. Kuther integrates cutting-edge and classic research throughout the text to present a unified story of developmental science and its applications to everyday life. Robust pedagogy, student-friendly writing, and an inviting design enhance this exciting and inclusive exploration of the ways in which context informs our understanding of the lifespan.
