The Child and Society: The Process of Socialization

Excerpt

A volume of this size is necessarily limited in the material it can cover. The focus of this study is on socialization in everyday life in modern society. Two types of material especially relevant to socialization are barely touched on: that gathered by anthropologists describing patterns in other societies and that accumulated by psychologists in laboratory experiments and other more precisely controlled situations. Anthropologists have shown the extensive range of behavior children are capable of learning and the many varied techniques employed in child training; psychologists, above all else, have amassed considerable data on the development of children and have held up the ideal of cumulative and organized knowledge.

I should like to express my gratitude to Charles H. Page, editor of this series, for his encouragement and invaluable suggestions on style and content.
