Review quote

' ... interesting and dynamic, particularly because it addresses not only the points in commom, the past, present and possible convergence of psychology and history in addressing the development of children, but because it expresses and represents the tensions between these disciplines as well.' Reviews in Anthropology 'Children in Time and Place is both enlightening and stimulating. It is an excellent introduction to new interdisciplinary work that has enormous potential for contributing to the fields of developmental psychology, history, and sociology. The volume has an impressive scope and clearly demonstrates the promise and accomplishments of this kind of interdisciplinary collaboration, both conceptually and operationally.' Paul Mussen, University of California, Berkeley
