"As the title suggests, this is a wide-ranging handbook for students and researchers covering five key areas: developmental research designs, issues around development measurement, data analysis, methods in developmental psychology and new directions in devlopmental research. A state of the art treatment." The Scientific and Medical Network

"This book will become a classic. It fills a void in developmental science by providing a comprehensive review of developmental designs and methods in a way that is both accessible and compelling. By providing examples of differing methods used across different domains of inquiry, the Handbook does an excellent job of capturing the variation in research that is developmental science. I will use it as a reference for years to come." Sarah Mangelsdorf, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"A fascinating, essential resource for developmental scientists. This volume examines cutting-edge issues in design, measurement, analytic methods, and applications in chapters by leading researchers. As they profile state-of-the-art methods in specific research areas, the contributors offer a portrayal of developmental science as innovative, challenging, and vigorous. This is an important collection that experienced and novice investigators will find valuable." Ross Thompson, University of California, Davis
