This new fifth edition captures the excitement and relevance of child psychology at the beginning of the 21st century; a theme that is exemplified in the text's new subtitle: <i>Child Development in a Changing Society.</i> In addition to extensive research coverage, each chapter includes an additional section that relates the chapter subject to social and cultural contexts, or implications of research for social policy, public practice, or societal change. This new edition places children, child development, and the contexts in which development occurs at the center of the discourse. Thus, this edition has a strong balance of theory, research, and real-world application.
"In the following pages the Author has placed before the reader an account of the changes in the design of Decorative Furniture and Woodwork, from the earliest period of which we have any reliable or certain record until the present time. A careful selection of illustrations has been made, and the representations of the different interiors will convey an idea of the character and disposition of the furniture of the periods to which they refer." Contains chapters on Roman furniture, the Renaissance Period and its variations throughout Europe, Asian furniture, and many more. Originally released in 1892.
