Формат книги: крупный, 15.6 на 23.3 см
When the first volume of Annual Progress in Child Psychiatry and Child Development appeared 13 years ago, it was hailed as a long-needed guide to ongoing work in this burgeoning field. For even if one could read everything in a single area of special interest, there are often outstanding studies in other areas whose significance and impact cut across a number of fields. All too often contributions of lasting interest are lost in the welter of current publication and are not readily available for later consultation. As the Journal of the American Medical Association wrote in reviewing Volume 1 of ANNUAL PROGRESS, ‘‘Let us hope this is the beginning of an annual series. ”
The 1982 volume maintains the high standards established by this prestigious series. It makes available a remarkably useful and stimulating collection of 41 articles in 10 major areas of interest. From the tremendous mass of published material, Drs. Chess and Thomas have selected the outstanding articles “of most value to workers in this field both for immediate information and for long-term reference. ” Each article is presented in its entirety with all original illustrations, tables and bibliographies. Each article has been chosen for its intrinsic merit rather than in terms of a quota to fit a predetermined series of topics.
In general, articles are of two types: (1) Original work that holds promise of making a contribution to progress in the study of the child; (2) Review articles which present a clear, thoughtful and systematic picture of the state of knowledge in an important area.
It is likely that all professionals working with normal and disturbed children will find this a rich and stimulating collection, with most of the articles having major significance in then-own field of work.
