In The Essentials of Lifespan Development best-selling author Tara L. Kuther examines the ways in which contexts-- culture, society, socioeconomic status, home, family, and even community-- impact each stage of a person's life. Using highly relatable examples, and vivid cross-cultural stories, Kuther connects the latest cutting edge research to learners’ experiences and interdisciplinary career aspirations. A chronological, 16-chapter organization; chunked content; and routine critical thinking practice help to make the book inviting and accessible for all students.
