Summary
This is the work of America's real authorities, the heavy hitters in psychology, health, sociology, anthropology, and family history. It aims to fill the gap between how-to books and specialized texts aimed at scholars.; Parents trying to fathom their teenagers' behaviour (or children mystified by their parents), teachers, students, professionals working in the field: everyone should find something here to inform, surprise, and even entertain. Entries, which are carefully illustrated and accompanied by suggestions for further reading, get right to the point. Cultural, social and historical material is covered wherever relevant, but the books focus on the psychological aspects of the parent-child relationship. Biological concepts - fertility, pregnancy, birth - receive full treatment as well
