Summary

An array of exciting new studies of child and adolescent development phenomena.

Unique in its attention to both cultural and critical perspectives, this book contributes strongly to the advance of developmental psychology beyond the cognitive-developmental paradigm that has defined the field for the past quarter century. It provides insights from critical pedagogy, cultural psychology, feminism, postmodernism, critical theory, and semiotics and offers new perspectives into the lived experiences of children, adolescents, and adults in the contemporary world.

Contributors include Katherine Brown, Lyn Mikel Brown, Michael Cole, Elizabeth Debold, Robin L. Leavitt, Zeus Leonardo, Peter McLaren, Usha Menon, Martin J. Packer, Linda J. Rogers, Richard A. Shweder, and Mark B. Tappan.

Martin J. Packer is Associate Professor of Psychology at Duquesne University, and the coeditor of Entering the Circle: Hermeneutic Investigation in Psychology, also published by SUNY Press. Mark B. Tappan is Associate Professor and Chair of the Education and Human Development Program at Colby College, and the coeditor (with Martin J. Packer) of Narrative and Storytelling: Implications for Understanding Moral Development.
