The ten original essays presented here chart the personal and professional life experiences of these remarkable contributors from the discipline of developmental psychology. Employing the autobiographical approach, the book provides a unique view of how research and scientific inquiries are conducted while adding the human dimension generally absent from textbooks or journal articles.
This book will be of interest to students in history or developmental psychology courses as well as to the general reader looking for first-person accounts of the emergence of contemporary developmental psychology.
