Editorial Reviews

This is Volume 5 of the new edition of what is now a five-volume reference (the publication date, and the number of volumes in the first edition are not stated). The set is intended as a resource for professionals in the many fields that deal with families, and the contributed articles survey research and include extensive bibliographies on the subjects under consideration. Each of the five volumes emphasizes somewhat different themes. The fifth volume comprises 19 contributions on the nuts and bolts of parenting as well as the promotion of positive parenting practices. Topics include the ethics of parenting, attachment, child compliance, the development of children's self-regulation, children's prosocial and moral development, maximizing children's cognitive abilities, parenting talented children, play in parent-child interactions, everyday stresses, parents and children's peer relationships, health promotion, and the related social institutions such as schools, media, doctors, law and public policy. Editor Bornstein, who is also one of the authors, is affiliated with the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development; contributions are from experts in psychology, human development, and education. There is no price or ISBN for the complete five-volume set. Subject and author indexes for the whole set are included in each volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
