The field of human development focuses on the growth and development of the human being, including
physical, social, psychological, and emotional development from conception through death. Under the broad umbrella of the term human development are found countless topics, many of which are explored in this encyclopedia. In addition, as our knowledge about development has increased through the use of more sophisticated research techniques and large funding programs, we have seen a growth in the general interest in these areas, hence the proliferation of trade and mass-market books about development that are readily available and accessible to the public.
