Thomas (University of California-Santa Barbara) overviews the findings of more than two dozen theorists in child development and examines issues that bridge a variety of theories. This sixth edition eliminates two chapters on commonsense conceptions of child development, and contains a new chapter on Carol Gilligan's compassionate-care model. A section on regions of the brain has been appended to the chapter on the bioelectrochemical model, and material on development-selectivity has been added. Lists of Web sites are also new to this edition. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
