Development in Infancy reflects many new discoveries that have transformed our understanding of infants and their place in human development, with an emphasis on 21st century research. Organized topically, the book covers physical, perceptual, cognitive, language, emotional, and social development, in addition to describing theories of development, contexts of development, research methods, and implications of research in infancy for social policies and interventions. Key issues in infancy studies?those having to do with how nature and nurture transact and with interrelations among diverse domains of development?are woven throughout the book. The text also emphasizes infancy as a unique stage of the life cycle.

The new edition features new key point summaries at the end of most sections, definitions of boldfaced terms in the margins, and invitations to engage in retrieval practice at the end of each chapter. Each chapter also features Set for Life? text boxes that explore events and developments in infancy that reverberate in later development. This edition also features a new full-color design and over 100 figures, tables, and photos. The text is written in a clear and engaging style and is approachable for students with varying academic backgrounds and experiences.

Development in Infancy is the authoritative text for undergraduate and graduate courses on infant development or early child development taught in departments of psychology, child development, education, nursing, and social work. The text is supported by Support Material that features a robust set of instructor and student resources.

"The 6th edition of Development of Infancy adds to the already considerable strengths of the previous editions by increasing its accessibility and incorporating helpful key points and retrieval practices to consolidate learning. The book provides outstanding coverage of all of the key areas of development in the first years of life. The authors improve engagement by applying elegantly research findings and theories to social policy, education, and parenting. It remains the definitive textbook on infancy." David H. Rakison, Carnegie Mellon University, USA


"The new edition of Development in Infancy by Martha Arterberry and Marc Bornstein is the book that every educator in infant development has been anticipating. This comprehensive and accessible textbook brilliantly explores the fascinating journey of infant development, with a strong emphasis on the infant's interaction with its caregiver/context. What sets this book apart is its eloquent and precise narrative, making it equally appealing to both students and professors. I particularly appreciate the key points tables at the end of each section, which will undoubtedly be a hit among students. Development in Infancy is an invaluable resource that seamlessly combines scholarship with readability." Professor Gianluca Esposito, University of Trento, Italy


"A comprehensive and concise book by erudite and perspicacious authors, brimming with fountains of knowledge and oceans of insights, all expertly constructed with consummate artistry and impeccable craftmanship. From the emergence of a nonspeaking newborn to a fully realized and cognitively agile child, these twelve chapters traverse the realms of motor skills, perception, cognition, language, emotion, and social interactions, adeptly interwoven to form a seamless tapestry of Development in Infancy. I am particularly enamored by, wholeheartedly endorse, and ardently champion the conscious incorporation of biological perspectives and content within this enlightening compendium of developmental psychology." Lei Chang, University of Macau, China


"Arterberry and Bornstein's Development in Infancy is a fascinating journey into the field of child development. This comprehensive work brilliantly navigates through essential topics, from nature vs. nurture to intricate aspects of cognition, emotion, and social-cognition. The systemic and ecological approaches provide a rich framework for understanding the complexities of infancy. The authors invite us to consider the infant as a whole within the environment in which development proceeds through space and time. This book is a compass for students approaching developmental science and a must-read for anyone passionate about unravelling the mysteries of early human development." Livio Provenzi, University of Pavia, Italy
