Help students understand how culture impacts development- and why it matters. Through current research and examples of human development around the world, Arnett's Human Development teaches students to think culturally about their own development and see how it applies to their own lives and fut...ure careers. New U.S. and international videos, shot in several countries, allow students to observe similarities and differences in human development across cultures.

Videos are also available on MyDevelopmentLab.

Learning objectives help students organize and understand the material covered within each section. Explore Research -- "Research Focus" provides students with a firm grasp of various research methods and helps them see the impact that methods can have on research findings. Understand Culture and Diversity -- By taking a cultural approach to human development, Arnett includes culture on every page and integrates culture throughout the narrative.
