This text introduces students to 22 different theories of development, comparing and contrasting them. A biographical introduction to each theorist is included, along with case studies and examples. The theorists covered range over both the developmental and the environmental traditions. For example, from the former, in the tradition of Rousseau, those covered include Gesell, Piaget and Montessori and from the latter, in the environmentalist/learning tradition, those covered include Mary Ainsworth, Bandura, Erikson and Chomsky.

From the Publisher:

This best-selling text introduces students to twenty-two theories of development. Comparing and contrasting the theories covered, it focuses on theorists who follow the developmental tradition of Rousseau--theorists such as Gesell, Piaget, and Montessori, who believe we grow largely from our inner maturational promptings and spontaneous discoveries. However, Crain also covers theorists in the environmental/learning tradition. The book concludes with a chapter on how developmental theorists anticipated major themes in contemporary humanistic psychology.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This highly readable book introduces readers to twenty-two thories of development.
