The fifth edition of this topically-organized introduction to infancy provides a comprehensive overview of infant development with a strong theoretical and research base. The authors goal is to help readers gain a clear understanding of infant development and the related issues and problems that will most likely be the focus of significant advances in the future.
The new edition reflects the enormous changes that have occurred in infant development over the past decade. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised to reflect the field s current thinking and research emphasizing work from the 21st century, although the most classic references have also been retained. All aspects of infant development are reviewed including contextual, methodological, neurological, physical, perceptual, cognitive, communicative, emotional, and social development. With the addition of new co-author Martha Arterberry, this edition, features a more accessible style and enhanced pedagogical program, making this edition an ideal text in classes at all levels, undergraduate and graduate, as well as in various disciplinary contexts.
This extensively revised edition features a number of changes:
New co-author, Martha Arterberry, added a number of new pedagogical tools and rewrote certain sections making the book attractive to students from diverse academic backgrounds.
Intended for beginning graduate or advanced undergraduate courses on infant (and toddler) development or infancy or early child development taught in departments of psychology, human development & family studies, education, sociology, social work, and anthropology, this book also appeals to social service providers, policy makers, and clergy who work with community institutions.
Like most how-to books, 'How to Select a Vendor for Web Development' is the product of many years of hard-earned personal experience shaped by honest observation. The lack of useful, systematic information about selecting a website developer spurred me into writing the book I could never find but always wanted to read. Here it is: everything you ever wanted to know about selecting a website developer. Using concise language and an easy-to-read format, I present a simple, step-by-step guide that I hope will be beneficial to businesses and non-profits seeking a vendor they can trust. Since 1995, I have headed my own consulting and web development business. INITSOFT Web Solutions has worked with more than 100 clients, including large corporations as well as numerous small companies and non-profit organizations. Salim Lakhani
Recent European Commission studies recall the urgency of promoting new and more robust Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), due to the rise of enormous global markets and the emergence of a new industrial system originating from the distinctly different business culture of the Far East. A "road map" for the survival of SMEs in Europe must be based on an accurate analysis of the most significant causes behind the weaknesses of SMEs. Several research projects conclude that SMEs must join together to create "networks". Yet the majority of the existing networks suffer from a lack of real coordination: it is clear that a method for analyzing the governance of the network and its collaboration efficiency is essential for assuring effective performance. "A Road Map to the Development of European SME Networks" addresses this task: describing the method of analysis, allowing comparisons to be made between SME networks in different European countries, and providing information on a supporting web site.

This ground-breaking book weaves together insights from the children and youth studies literature and critical development studies. Debunking the idea of childhood and youth as self-evident social categories, the author unravels how these generational constructs are (re)constituted and experienced in relational terms in development contexts spanning both the Global South and the Global North.
Running through these chapters is a fundamental concern with age, gender and generation as key principles of social differentiation.Â This is developed in Part 1 at a theoretical level, and applied to everyday contexts, including school, work, migration and the street in Part 2. Part 3 zooms in on the generational dynamics of development by exploring how prominent development interventions (conditional cash transfers, schooling) problems (gender discrimination) and questions (the generational question of farming) shape the (gendered) experience of being young and growing up.Â
