Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wonderful book for all professionals whose work touches the lives of children and their caregivers, and others in allied fields!"
- T. Berry Brazelton, Brazelton Touchpoints Center and Harvard Medical School


"A rich and highly diverse collection of papers that illuminate some of the complex puzzles lying at the interface of development, experience, and biology. Scholars interested in the new evidence on epigenetic processes, Williams syndrome, and cultural influences should profit from this volume."
- Jerome Kagan, Harvard University


"Formative Experiences is a marvelous collection on the frontier of knowledge about the role of the environment in social and emotional development. Its range of contributions - from the developmental psychobiology laboratory to the exotic cross-cultural field study and the clinical challenges of psychological suffering - make it unique, and the distinction of its authors make it indispensable. It sets a new standard for multilevel analysis in this rich and exciting realm of science."
- Melvin Konner, author of The Evolution of Childhood: Relationships, Emotion, Mind


"Interdisciplinary cross-cultural research on the formative impact of experiences in childhood, including bullying and other stresses."
-Chronicle of Higher Education


"...The multidisciplinary approach encourages a transactional view of developmental plasticity and variation and includes both animal and ethnographic studies. Excellent commentaries follow many of the chapters and provide undergraduates with excellent models of critiques and discussions... Highly recommended..."
--J. Mercer, emerita, Richard Stockton College, CHOICE


"....Formative Experiences is a must-have for scholars interested in the biology of child development in cross-cultural context. It does a remarkable job of capturing the key points of what must have been a fascinating conference.... Formative Experiences would be an excellent catalyst for an interdisciplinary seminar on child development.... provide a broad playing field for graduate students in anthropology, developmental psychology, human biology, genetics, medicine, neurobiology, and related disciplines....."
--Mark V. Flinn, University of Missouri, American Journal of Human Biology

Book Description

This interdisciplinary book explores the formative effects of children's early life experiences, with an emphasis on interactions among neurodevelopmental, behavioral, and cultural dynamics. Multidisciplinary case studies focus on specific periods of development during which caregiving and other cultural practices potentially have a long-lasting impact on brain and behavior. The final section translates insights from this work into a fresh appraisal of child-rearing practices, clinical interventions, and global public health policy.
