Book Description

This is the most authoritative overview of the prominent developmental scientists from around the world that can be found in The Developmental Science of Adolescence: History Through Autobiography (PDF). Every chapter is an interesting and personal account of the current, past, and future orientation of the field, and it was written by the scholars who were instrumental in the formation of the history that is being recounted. There is no other reference source that comes close to matching the authenticity of this one in terms of how well it presents the most cutting-edge developmental research of adolescence.

This e-book features an introduction written by Saths Cooper, the President of the International Union of Psychological Science, as well as autobiographical chapters written by some of the most prominent developmental scientists in the world, including:

Jeffrey Jensen Arnett; Jeanne Brooks-Gunn; Robert Wm. Blum; Marlis Buchmann; B. Bradford Brown; John Coleman; John Bynner; James E. Côté; William Damon; Rand D. Conger; Nancy Eisenberg; Sanford M. Dornbusch; David P. Farrington; Glen H. Elder; Jr.; Andrew J. Fuligni; Helmut Fend; Beatrix A. Hamburg; Stephen F. Hamilton; Frank F. Furstenberg; Richard Jessor; Daniel P. Keating; Karen Hein; Klaus Hurrelmann; Iris F. Litt; David Magnusson; Reed W. Larson; Richard M. Lerner;


“The historiographical structure used in The Developmental Science of Adolescence could be a valuable technique to apply not only in the study of adolescent development but also in other fields. Without a doubt, the content-packed nature of this book makes for stimulating reading…” Sherry Lynn Hatcher and the PsycCRITIQUES team
