From the Back Cover:

From Locke and Rousseau to Piaget and Bandura, scholars have advanced our understanding of psychological development. In this lively and readable book, Crain introduces the concepts of a number of outstanding theorists, giving special attention to the practical applications of their thought.

This Fifth Edition features new discussions of:
  • Piaget and his critics
  • Freud's mechanisms of defense
  • Werner and today's push for early literacy instruction
  • Schachtel's views on why adults forget early childhood experiences
  • The standards movement that dominates contemporary education
