From the Publisher
"Motives in Children's Development is devoted to the important yet insufficiently explored topic of motivation and emotion in childhood development. This volume makes important steps forward in developing and elaborating a theoretical framework that shifts the unit of analysis in psychology away from the individual toward social interactions and relationships between children and their social world."
- Anne Stetsenko, The Graduate Center of the City of New York
"...Hedegaard (psychology, Univ. of Copenhagen, Denmark), Edwards (education, Oxford Univ., UK), and Fleer (education, Monash Univ., Australia) have edited a collection of papers dealing with a topic rarely touched on in the US.... This collection will be of more interest to theorists of education..."
