HANDBOOK OF CHILD PSYCHOLOGY AND DEVELOPMENTAL SCIENCE - Seventh Ed. by Volume Editors LYNN S. LIBEN ULRICH MULLER pdfDevelopment is one of life’s optimistic ideas. It implies not just change but improvement, progress, forward movement, and some sense of positive direction. What constitutes improvement in any human capacity is an open, important, and fascinating question requiring astute theoretical analysis and sound empirical study. So, too, are questions of what accounts for improvement; what enhances it; and what prevents it when it fails to occur. One of the landmark achievements of this edition of the Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science is that a full selection of top scholars in the field of human development have offered us state-of-the-science answers to these essential questions.

Compounding the interest of this edition, the concept of development applies to scholarly fields as well as to individuals, and the Handbook’s distinguished history, from its inception more than 80 years ago to the present edition, richly reveals the development of a field. Within the field of human development, the Handbook has had a long and notable tradition as the field’s leading beacon, organizer, and encyclopedia of what’s known. This latest Handbook edition, Child Psychology Book pdf, overflowing with insights and information that go well beyond the scientific knowledge available in previous editions, is proof of the substantial progress made by the field of human development during its still-short (by scholarly standards) history.

Indeed, the history of developmental science has been inextricably intertwined with the history of the Handbook. Like many influential encyclopedias, the Handbook influences the field it reports on. Scholars—especially younger ones—look to it to guide their own work. It serves as an indicator and as a generator, a pool of received findings, and a source for generating new insight.

It is impossible to imagine what the field would look like if Carl Murchison had not assembled a ground-breaking collection of essays on the then-almost-unknown topic of child study in his first Handbook of Child Psychology. That was 1931, at the dawn of a scholarly history that, like every developmental narrative, has proceeded with a combination of continuity and change. What does this history tell us about where the field of developmental science has been, what it has learned, and where it is going? What does it tell us about what’s changed and what has remained the same in the questions that have been asked, in the methods used, and in the theoretical ideas that have been advanced to understand human development?…
