Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A new look at the nature-nurture issue, presenting it as an integrated system in which there is interaction and interdependence and in which causality is almost never linear or caused by only one factor....A very powerful example of the need for professionals to be conversant in and with other disciplines...bringing together the fields of economics, demography, sociology, psychology, and psychiatry....An extraordinary volume that deals with fundamental questions about human development" Contemporary Psychology
