E-BOOK EXCERPT

The success of this best-selling text lies in the authorโ€™s belief that a good text talks with, rather than at, its readers. Shaffer does an extraordinary job of anticipating studentsโ€™ interests, questions, and concerns while treating them as active participants in the process of learning about social and personality development. The Sixth edition of SOCIAL AND PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT features clearly written, current coverage of social and personality development that aids students in discovering the causes, processes, and complexities that underlie developmental change. Students learn why biological and environmental factors, contextual factors such as cross-cultural, familial, neighborhood, school, and peer-group influences cause change in children. Shaffer also explores the approaches that researchers use to test their theories and answer important questions about developing children and adolescents. This bookโ€™s effective coverage of field research stands out from other texts not only for its accuracy and currency, but because Shaffer consistently juxtaposes classic research with the latest breakthroughs in a way that helps students appreciate how knowledge builds on earlier findings. This edition features a much stronger emphasis on cultural influences on development.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Shaffers current and comprehensive overview of social and personality development reflects the best theories, research, and practical wisdom that social developmentalists have to offer. Shaffer helps students understand the processes that underlie developmental change, illustrating that different social contexts help determine development. The book describes and explains the processes by which unsocialized infants are integrated into the society and subculture in which they live. Though the book has a strong theoretical emphasis and is research-oriented, practical implications of such are integrated throughout the text.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

This volume is an attempt to integrate the theory and data of social and personality development within a modem evolutionary framework. The various chapters are not meant to be read in isolation from one another but rather are intended to form an integrated whole. There is thus a great deal of cross-referencing between chapters and to some extent they all stand or fall together. This also suggests that the accuracy (or usefulness) of a particular chapter cannot be judged until the book is comprehended as a whole. Chapter 1 deals with the theoretical foundations of this enterprise, and the focus is on the compatibility of mainstream approaches within the field to a modem evolutionary approach. Chapters 2-4 concern what I view to be the fundamental proximal mechanisms underlying social and personality development. Chapter 2, on temperament and person ality development, is particularly central to the rest of the volume because these processes are repeatedly invoked as explanatory concepts at later points in the volume.
