Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(1), 82–83. Reviews the book, Developmental psychology: An introduction by Howard Gardner (see record 1979-20691-000). This substantial new contribution to the available texts in developmental or child psychology attempts to avoid encyclopedic coverage in favor of greater depth of coverage and an effort to be less neutral or theoretically blind. Basic views of the child, childhood at different periods of history, and a brief look at the course of development of developmental psychology are discussed in it.
