'By examining each theory through a cultural lens, Human Development Theories provides readers with the unusual perspective of being able to step outside of our own cultural heritage and to view other cultures as being equally viable, reasonable, and comprehensible...The writing is crystal clear, and the author has done a superb job of defining the 25 theories in a way that is at once accessible and stimulating...I would rank Human Development Theories as outstanding' -Ann C. Diver-Stamnes, Department of Education, Humboldt State University, California Human Development Theories reveals how different theories of development contribute to an understanding of cultural influences on the lives of children and youth.
