Summary
"This volume describes children's development in its cultural context. It stresses that children's development in diverse cultures follows different paths, depending on the opportunities provided by their cultures." "Thus, Children's Engagement in the World: Sociocultural Perspectives considers children's development and education within its social as well as cultural context. This book brings together the most recent theoretical advances in cultural psychology in order to establish a framework for the studies reported in it. The book also draws from the cross-cultural tradition in Developmental Psychology and from Vygotsky and Activity Theory."--Jacket
