    Book synopsis: Critically acclaimed and highly authoritative collection of parenting issues, featuring a unique balance of practical and scholarly information. This illustrated, A–Z encyclopedia on parenthood in America offers fresh insights and solid information, all based on the latest research. Parenthood in America is the work of the nation's real authorities, the heavy-hitters in psychology, health, sociology, anthropology, and family history. It aims to fill the gap between how-to books (which generally blend popular notions and authors' pet theories) and specialized texts aimed at scholars. Parents, teachers, students, and professionals working in the field will find something here to inform, surprise, and even entertain. Entries are concise, carefully illustrated, and accompanied by suggestions for further reading. Readers will find entries on the superstars of the field, both popular (Dr. Spock, Dr. Seuss, Mr. Rogers) and scholarly (Ainsworth, Bowlby, Erikson). • Includes bibliographies of important figures in parenthood education • Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by further reading suggestions
