Child Care in Context: Cross-cultural Perspectives

Michael E. Lamb, Kathleen J. Sternberg, Carl-Philip Hwang, Anders G. Broberg, Anders G. Broberg (University of Goteborg, Sweden)

Child care is an integral part of the web of influences and experiences that shape children’s development. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach that covers both historic and economic contexts, this unique book characterizes child care in 18 countries on five continents. Specific historical roots and the current social contexts of child care are delineated in industrialized as well as in developing countries. To increase the depth of crosscultural analysis and integration, commentators from countries and disciplines other than the authors comment on the issues raised in each chapter.
