With lenses from multiple disciplines, contributors to this volume examine culture and parenting effects on child development and individual and cultural wellbeing. The contributions examine in more detail what might be considered baselines for social mammalian and human development. The volume includes examinations of specific cultures, reviews of hunter-gatherer cultures on particular topics, evolutionary views of offspring in evolution, as well as mammalian and human developmental needs. The emphasis is on caregiving and offspring, their interaction, and how family and community cultures influence and are affected by children.
