"As in other fields of psychology, the growth of new knowledge and research findings about children's development seems to increase exponentially from year to year. In the lossing battle to keep track of all of the new findings, it is particularly valuable to have outlets like the Advances series, in which leading scholars present 'novel' perspectives on a topic using their own programmatic lines of work... The Advances series has always been a leader in showcasing groundbreaking ideas on a broad range of topics in the field. The present volume continues admirably in this tradition, with its well-written papers, rich scholarship, and careful editing... The intellectual exchange between reader and text that results is one good working illustration of the meaning of provocative. And a certain bonus of the effort is to be an early consumer of a least one or two papers destined to become 'classics' in the field."
"Maintains the high level of quality and interest one has come to expect from these volumes... One only hopes that additional volumes in the series will be forthcoming."
CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY "This series has served as a major outlet for important new ideas on psychological development."
