Perspectives on Human Development

PERSPECTIVES ON HUMAN DEVELOPMENT publishes innovative work on human development that takes the interdisciplinary focus of contemporary developmental science as its base. Work at the intersection of developmental psychology, sociology, history, and anthropology is welcome in the series as long as it advances our general understanding of human development in societal contexts. We also re-publish classic works in developmental science furnished with up-to-date commentaries on how these contributions could further advance our knowledge in the 21st century.
