This study is written by British and North American infancy researchers. The chapters are organised along conventional lines in sections which cover perceptual, cognitive and social development, relating new findings on infant perception to both old and new accounts of cognitive development. The book also draws links between these topics and the development of social interaction and language. Attention is given to both traditional approaches such as Piagetian theory and more recent approaches such as direct perception and dynamic systems theory. There is also a chapter devoted to interpreting infant development from a psychoanalytic perspective.
