Children on Playgrounds
Children on Playgrounds (July 1993)
Research Perspectives and Applications
Craig H. Hart - Editor

"By focusing on playgrounds as a common theme, Children on Playgrounds offers some new perspectives on peer relationship research.

The inclusion of data from other countries will enable researchers to begin to answer questions about the respective roles of d...(Read More)

Pretending at Home
Pretending at Home (July 1993)
Early Development in a Sociocultural Context
Wendy L. Haight - Author
Peggy J. Miller - Author

"Pretending at Home provides a close look at how young, middle-class, Euroamerican children and their mothers engage in pretend play. Haight and Miller argue that pretend play is, from its origins, a social, not a solitary, activity. The rich analysis of the play episodes of nine children and their caregivers over the first few years of their lives together yields a very solid portrayal of the development of pretend play.

Time and Psychological Explanation
Time and Psychological Explanation (July 1993)
Brent D. Slife - Author

"This is a top-notch, scholarly work. I believe that Slife took a very difficult, complex topic and brought considerable understanding to it for the reader. Books of this type raise the level of sophistication in psychology." -- Joseph F. Rychlak, Loyola University

Spiritualism, following it inception in 1848, became a movement that claimed to be a scientific ...(Read More)
 
 
The Functions of Dreaming
The Functions of Dreaming (March 1993)
Alan Moffitt - Editor
Milton Kramer - Editor
Robert Hoffmann - Editor

"Understanding dreaming is essential to a comprehensive account of the nature of the mind. After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping; as the chapters of this book amply demonstrate, important mental activity goes on during sleep, and psychology cannot be complete as long as it ignores the mind asleep and dreaming. The editors have done a commendable job of bringing together a wide variety of views of the 'elephant of the dark.' I found re...(Read More)
