Help students understand how culture impacts development — and why it matters
Human Development: A Cultural Approach, Second Edition leads students to examine all stages of development through the engaging lens of culture. The first author to take a wholly cultural approach to human development, Jeffrey Arnett integrates cross-cultural examples throughout the narrative to reveal the impact of cultural factors both in the US and around the world. Arnett’s emphasis on culture fosters a thorough, balanced view of development that prepares students to face challenges in our diverse and globalized world — whether they travel the globe or remain in their hometowns.
