This Encyclopedia answers the demand for an authoritative, thorough and timely source of multidisciplinary information on issues, terms, people, theories and trends related to children and their development. Comprehensive, the Encyclopedia will be an invaluable reference tool to those interested in human development from birth through adolescence. Students and other patrons researching children will find regular use for this highly accessible, up-to-date reference. Written to have a broad appeal, each of the approximately 800 alphabetically arranged entries is signed by one of the book's expert contributors and includes a resource list and a brief bibliography. An advisory board of leading child development experts, under the editorship of Dr. Jerome Kagan at Harvard University, helped shape and review the content and scope of the Encyclopedia. Special features include approximately 200 illustrations, photographs, statistical charts and graphs, as well as extensive cross-referencing and a thorough master keyword index with names, theories, organizations and terms to help students quickly locate the information they need.
