About the Author

Lawrence G. Shelton is a Developmental Psychologist who has taught in the Human Development and Family Studies Program at the University of Vermont since 1971.


"Few scientists have had as profound an impact on the study of human development as Urie Bronfenbrenner. This textbook does a terrific job of explaining Bronfenbrenner's most important ideas in a way that will help students really understand them and apply them to their own research. I recommend it highly." - Laurence Steinberg, Temple University, USA "Lawrence Shelton has done a great service for generations of students to come by offering a comprehensive presentation of Urie Bronfenbrenner's approach to the ecology of human development. Shelton's book is clear, detailed, rich in its real world connections, and 'keeps faith' with Urie's vision of how to study and understand the complex processes by which the biological organism becomes the human person. As someone who knew Urie well I am pleased to see this important effort to keep his intellectual legacy alive and vibrant." - James Garbarino, Loyola University Chicago, USA
