Series: Publisher: New York ; London : McGraw-Hill Book Company, inc., 1943Edition: 1st ed.Description: viii, 652 p. incl. illus., diagrs., form. ; 24 cm.Subject(s): Child development | Child DevelopmentAdditional physical formats: No titleDDC classification: 136.7 Online resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: This volume aims to provide foundation material for work in child psychology by presenting reports of selected studies prepared for the use of college students. The reports are not essays about research. Each of them is an account of the procedures, results, and conclusions of a particular investigation. Their purpose is to represent not only the products but also the processes of research. The editors have hoped to pack a fairly adequate reserve shelf between the covers of one volume. If that objective has been realized, the book may find use as central rather than collateral reading in courses on child psychology or educational psychology. It would then save for the instructor the role of sketching background, giving points of view, and knitting together the whole field. By way of granting to the instructor a free hand in the organization of the material, the editors have not undertaken to classify the contents. Selected bibliographies covering the field of each study have been included for the guidance of students who may wish to study further. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
