This fine reference work on a topic of general interest presents 650 well-researched, well-written entries that expand and supplement information found in related works across disciplines. It offers explanations, definitions, brief biographies, and connections among then in a highly readable text.
"The creation of a complete and thorough review of the cross-disciplinary topic of human development is ambitious; the editor and advisory board, as well as the distinguished list of more than 650 contributors, are to be credited with realizing this goal. A wide and general audience will find much to praise in this work, beginning with the entries themselves. This set is recommended for academic and large public libraries where students and general adult readers will find it to be an excellent 'starting point'."
Reference Books Bulletin
"College-level collections on human development must have this 3-volume set Encyclopedia of Human Development, which brings together social, psychological and physical sciences and provides an analysis of the changing world of the human condition associated with aging. The set will be a useful reference for any student of psychology or social development."
