"This set's greatest value comes from its broad summaries of major research and its extensive bibliographies. These strengths, in combination with the advanced style, make this work of most use to graduate students and researchers." (Choice , 1 April 2011) Review of the first edition: "This volume is undoubtedly a comprehensive text on the relatively new field of infant research, detailing in a thorough way the vast empirical knowledge that has emerged in the last half century. Chapters are written in a way accessible to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. In addition, it is certainly a 'high level' treatment of the field and thus provides useful material for academics who may not themselves be involved in infant research but may teach in the field of infancy or early childhood development." (Mark Tomlinson, Journal of Child and Adolescent Mental Health 2005, 17(1))
