From the Publisher
Editors Note Eminent scientists from the social and biological fields believe that a fresh, interdisciplinary orientation is required to achieve progress on critical issues of behavioral theory, method, and application. A core group of these scientists formed the Carolina Consortium on Human Development in 1987 as an advanced institute for the study of development. This book is a result of the long-term collaboration of these scholars. In addition to the collaborative statement, this text consists of individual chapters that outline implications of the orientation for method and theory in traditional disciplines. The chapters address specific developmental issues, varying across time frames, methodologies, disciplines, cultures and even species. They provide an inside look at the basic issues that confront the modern social and behavioral study of development, including its strengths and problems.
