This is a comprehensive compilation of articles dealing with infancy and childhood. It is edited by the well-known psychologist and infant researcher, Penelope Leach. It is divided into three major sections: Issues in Infant Wellbeing; Evidence; and Action. The book examines infant research, policy, and programs. It gives recommendations for specific actions. One disappointment with the book concerns the absence of dealing significantly with the major problem of physical punishment and violence toward children.
