From infancy through to school age and beyond, most children are in constant contact with an array of social influences. Home life, education, community and the media all have some part to play in a child's development. In this absorbing book, the authors discuss the ways such diverse cultural settings impact on behaviour and how children are shaped by the world around them. They examine development from both a cultural and cross-cultural perspective, drawing on case studies, to illuminate theoretical insights. Students of both developmental and cultural psychology will find this to be the perfect starting point from which to investigate this fascinating topic further.

'This is most suitable for a final year psychology option, and it can strongly be recommended as supplementary reading for any human development course. It makes a very useful distinction between cultural psychology and the cross-cultural, and it has a strong research emphasis. There are very few up-to-date texts in this area, it will corner the market!' - Dr Dave Hiles, Principal Lecturer in Psychology, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
