    As noted in the preface, the underlying message of the original volume "Children in Time and Place: Developmental and Historical Insights" stressed the importance of recognizing that children's development is best understood when placed in a specific historical and life course developmental context. The current formulation updates this perspective by focusing more explicitly on the socio-cultural aspects as well.
    Children live in rapidly changing times that require them to constantly adapt to new economic, social, and cultural conditions. In this book, a distinguished, interdisciplinary group of scholars explores the issues faced by children in contemporary societies, such as discrimination in school and neighborhoods, the emergence of new family forms, the availability of new communication technologies, and economic hardship, as well as the stresses associated with immigration, war, and famine. The book applies a historical, cultural, and life-course developmental framework for understanding the factors that affect how children adjust to these challenges, and offers a new perspective on how changing historical circumstances alter children's developmental outcomes. It is ideal for researchers and graduate students in developmental and educational psychology or the sociology and anthropology of childhood. (Publisher)
