Overview

Through a careful examination of current research work including three on-going longitudinal studies, Dunn explores children's relationships with parents, siblings, friends, and the connections between these relationships. "This book presents a meticulous and perceptive account of the nature of young children's relationships with others. Judy Dunn confronts this task in its full complexity by skillfully blending objective, systematic research findings with observational reports that are both sensitive and insightful. In so doing, she has written an immensely readable, coherent state-of-the-art account of children's relationships, simultaneously forging an argument that challenges the paradigm with which much current research takes place." --Jennifer Castle, review in Personality & Individual Differences "Another gem from Judy Dunn! . . . This very readable and interesting book asks some searching questions about how relationships change with age, how one sort of relationship influences others, and how thought processes shape or control our interactions with other people. The answers are based on a judicious interweaving of qualitative observation and hard-headed quantitative analyses. The result is a challenging (and sometimes provocative) account of what we know today, together with a look forward to likely developments in the years to come." --Michael Rutter, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, The Bethlem Royal Hospital and Maudsley Hospital, London "This book presents a meticulous and perceptive account of the nature of young children's relationships with others. . . . Judy Dunn skilfully blends objective, systematic research findings with observational reportsthat are both sensitive and insightful. In so doing, she has written an immensely readable, coherent state-of-the-art account of children's relationships, simultaneously forging an argument that challenges the paradigm within which much current research takes place. . . . The breadth and scope of this book give it obvious appeal to all those interested in social and developmental psychology. . . . The style and presentation of the book will probably ensure it a readership beyond its intended audience: As usual, Judy Dunn presents complex material in a deceptively simple, uncluttered, commonsensical manner." --Behaviour Research & Therapy
