Summary
"Today's world is characterized by a set of overarching trends that often come under the rubric of social change. In this innovative volume, Rainer K. Silbereisen and Xinyin Chen bring together, for the first time, international experts in the field to examine how changes in our social world impact on individual development." "Divided into four parts, the book explores the major socio-political and technological changes that have taken place around the world-from the rapid upheavals in 1990s post-communist Europe to the gradual changes in parts of East Asia - and explains how these developments interplay with human development across the lifespan." "Social Change and Human Development is a useful resource for students and researchers involved in all areas of human development, including developmental psychology, sociology and education."--BOOK JACKET
