Help students understand how culture impacts development — and why it matters
Revel™ Human Development: A Cultural Approach
leads students to examine all stages of development through the engaging lens of culture. Jeffrey Jensen Arnett and new coauthor Lene Arnett Jensen integrate cross-cultural examples throughout the narrative to reveal the impact of cultural factors both in the US and around the world. The 3rd Edition includes thoroughly updated research and data for a learning experience that best prepares students to face challenges in our diverse and globalized world — whether they travel the globe or remain in their hometowns.
