orig.cloth Minor rubbing. VG. 24x15cm, xv,280 pp Contents: If Dr. Spock were born in Bali : raising a world of babies / Judy S.

Pierroutsakos -- The view from the Wuro : a guide to child rearing for Fulani parents / Michelle C. Johnson / Never leave your little one alone : raising an Ifaluk child / Huynh-Nhu Le. ["Are babies divine, or do they have the devil in them? Should parents talk to their infants, or is it a waste of time? Answers to questions about the nature and nurture of infants appear in this book as advice to parents in seven world societies. Imagine what Dr Spock might have written if he were a healer from Bali ! or an Aboriginal grandmother from the Australian desert ! or a diviner from a rural village in West Africa. As the seven childcare 'manuals' in this book reveal, experts worldwide offer intriguingly different advice to new parents. The creative format of this book brings alive a rich fund of ethnographic knowledge, vividly illustrating a simple but powerful truth: there exist many models of babyhood, each shaped by deeply held values and widely varying cultural contexts. After reading this book, you will never again view child rearing as a matter of 'common sense'" - Publisher's description]. Bookseller Inventory # 017217
