This first volume of readings for the "Child Development in Social Context" series concentrates on the development of infants. While not neglecting the discoveries of laboratory research in recent years, it emphasizes the growing concern of the discipline with naturalistic observations of everyday life, and shows how analysis of these can enrich our understanding of the relation between the behaviour of the caregiver and the emerging competencies of the child. The cross-cultural dimension of early development is a particular focus of this volume.
First relationships; the process of development; relationships and early learning; the construction of identity.
