Editorial Reviews

Review

The book's purpose: to offer a new theoretical perspective for research in human development. Bronfenbrenner achieves this goal superbly. . . The synthesis offered in this book is unique...The effect is a perspective on the field of human development that is exciting in its possibilities...This is a usable and practical book...a powerful teaching text...It conveys masterfully the mystery and excitement of scientific investigation. (Contemporary Psychology)

The Ecology of Human Development "should generate more productive research work and more sensible thinking about family policy than we have had in the past...Bronfenbrenner is headed in exactly the right direction for directing research and guiding public action. That is an impressive accomplishment. (Psychology Today)

Bronfenbrenner's particular observations are thoughtful and provocative...[The book] provides a welcome antidote for the current spate of premature conclusions about what is and is not important in development. (Science)

Format: Paperback
Bronfenbrenner is a must for family researchers to define the variables of human development from the individual to the community and world surrounding them. A highly recommended theory for social/family researchers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been in search of this book at an affordable price for many years. Bronfenbrenner's 'ecological systems' model is a brilliant framework through which to look at inextricable factors present in the individual's developmental environment. His definitions and hypotheses are clearly stated, his argument is sound and thought provoking and he brings together psychological theory and concepts that enhance theoretical understanding.
A collector's book, excellent price, condition and value

great book ----To understand the way children develop, Bronfenbrenner believes that it is necessary to observe their behavior in natural settings, while they are interacting with familiar adults over prolonged periods of time.

Bronfenbrenner demonstrates the importance of using a stratified, systemic model to deconstruct the psychosocial environment that any Social Scientist attempts to understand. The book provides a pragmatic model for deconstructing and exploring each of the six social layers that constitute a sociocultural environment. Moreover it assist in drawing possible causal and correlative connections between the various layers, identifying patters and links. As such this book is useful for any professional that needs to develop interventions or conduct research within a particular sociocultural system. I found it an easy read as well as a useful reference.
