This major new undergraduate textbook provides students with everything they need when studying developmental psychology.
Guiding students through the key topics, the book provides both an overview of traditional research and theory as well as an insight into the latest research findings and techniques. Taking a chronological approach, the key milestones from birth to adolescence are highlighted and clear links between changes in behaviour and developments in brain activity are made. Each chapter also highlights both typical and atypical developments, as well as discussing and contrasting the effects of genetic and environmental factors.
The book contains a wealth of pedagogical features to help students engage with the material, including:
A Student's Guide to Developmental Psychology is supported by a companion website, featuring a range of helpful supplementary resources including exclusive video clips to illustrate key developmental concepts.

Feldman maintains the student friendliness that has been the hallmark of Feldman's other development textbooks. It is rich in examples and illustrates the applications that can be derived from the research and theory of lifespan developmentalists. It pays particular attention to the applications that can be drawn from theory and research in the field.
To optimize student learning and to provide instructors with maximum flexibility, the book uses a modular approach. Consequently, rather than facing long, potentially daunting chapters, students encounter material that is divided into smaller, more manageable chunks (modules). Presenting material in small chunks represents a structure that research long ago found to be optimum for promoting learning.

Technical innovation in industry is regarded by many people as the best way of making industry more profitable. A great deal of energy and time is being expended by businessmen and by governments discussing how best to bring about technical innovation. This book, which was first published in 1987, argues that all concerned with technical innovation should bear in mind the importance of 'networks'. 'Networks' are defined as the web of contacts which exist between suppliers, customers, and producers in industry. Drawing on extensive original research, the book discusses the need for co-ordinating technical research and development with suppliers and customers and examines in detail how this should best be done. This book is ideal for students of business and economics.
