Product Description


Killen and Coplan have provided a great service to students and teachers. This Contemporary Reader is a valuable contribution to a field that is intellectually rich, but large and varied. The Reader comprehensively brings together an array of topics and readings that are unavailable elsewhere. The choices of topics and readings are right on the mark. The editors′ introductions, commentaries, questions, and exercises wonderfully augment the readings for teachers and students alike. Anyone teaching courses on social development will benefit from this volume.

 Elliott Turiel, University of California, Berkeley

The editors have provided students with an essential opportunity to read carefully–selected original research papers, as well as excellent linking commentaries that bring the material together in a comprehensive and appealing way.

 Joan Grusec, University of Toronto

A wonderful collection of classic and contemporary contributions to the study of child and adolescent social development!  Each section is introduced in an engaging fashion and is followed by clever suggestions for class exercises, debates, and discussion topics.  In this way, the reader is actually more than just "a reader!"  The volume can readily serve as a stand–alone introductory text for upper level undergraduate courses on social and emotional development.  At the graduate level, it would make a very fine accompaniment to an established text in the area of social and emotional development.

Kenneth Rubin, University of Maryland
