Review

The chapters in this outstanding volume describe the rich insights provided by classic studies in developmental science and, in describing the subsequent research the studies fostered, document the remarkable progress in the field over the past few decades. It should prove valuable to students and professionals alike Robert V. Kail Distinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences, Purdue University This volume puts classic studies in developmental psychology in their historical context and demonstrates their continued influence on current research. The fact that Slater and Quinn have recruited a group of world leading researchers to the project should make this a classic in its own right J. Gavin Bremner Professor of Developmental Psychology, Lancaster University This volume enlivens the study of developmental psychology with accounts of how and why classic studies moved the field forward with respect to central questions about psychological development. Cases were astutely chosen and beautifully realized by the chapter authors W. Andrew Collins Distinguished University Teaching Professor, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota 'All 14 contributions are excellent, but the strongest include one on conditioning fear reactions and Usha Goswami's "Reading and Spelling: Revisiting Bradley and Bryant's Study," which describes the breakthrough studies concerning children's language acquisition. Of particular poignancy, given recent violence in the US, are essays that look at studies of children's memory and eyewitness testimony, imitation of aggression, and resilience after traumatic events. Taken as whole, these essays remind one of the importance of developmental psychology research and how it informs on a daily basis. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals' S. K Hall University of Houston
