Childhood Social Development

Peter K. Smith

This new Major Work, in five volumes, captures the key conceptual issues and findings in research covering social development in early childhood, through to adolescence. Childhood social development is an enormous field of research addressing issues to do with emotional development, peer relations, self-esteem and bullying amongst other topics, and through the inclusion of both contemporary and classic papers, these volumes skilfully outline the development of the area, our current conceptions, and growing points and controversies.

Volume One: Social development within the family
Volume Two: Peer relations - friendship and play
Volume Three: Peer relations - dominance, aggression and bullying
Volume Four: Emotional intelligence and moral development
Volume Five: Cultural differences and theoretical perspectives
