For developmental scientists, the nature versus nurture debate has been settled for some time. It is nature and nurture in concert that shape developmental pathways and outcomes. This insight has progressed into the fascinating terrain of how they interact over the course of development. In this volume, readers will learn what is transpiring in this new paradigm from the developmental scientists working at the cutting edge.

“More so than any other book, Nature and Nurture in Early Child Development compellingly moves developmental science into a new scientific era, one where integrative theoretical models, innovative and rigorous methodologies, and impressive longitudinal data sets combine to elucidate the system of relations that weave biological, behavioral, and contextual variables into a mutually influential process shaping the course of individual development. Professor Keating and his colleagues have produced a landmark book that sets the scientific standard for how theory-predicated research about the system of biology-context relations may significantly advance understanding of the dynamics of early childhood and innovatively inform policies and programs aimed at promoting positive and healthy development in the early years of life.”

“This collection of articles, by some of the most esteemed developmental scientists of our time, is an invaluable resource for students of early development. If instructors are interested in exposing their students to cutting-edge research and theory, they will surely want to use this book.”
– Laurence Steinberg, Temple University
"....Keating (Univ. of Michigan) focuses not on nature and nurture individually, but on the interaction between the two during early childhood.... Recommended...."

"....a welcome addition to the bookshelf of those interested in the nature–nurture discussion.... the organization of the volume from microprocesses to macroprocesses leads the reader to appreciate the different levels of analysis at which researchers are and can continue examining the interplay of nature and nurture.... Nature and Nurture in Early Child Development generally succeeds in its goals. A great deal of recent research is reviewed, and we suspect that even experts in development and related fields can learn a great deal from the volume. Furthermore, the writing is generally accessible and engaging.... We would recommend the book as a text for graduate classes in child development and for researchers interested in the state of the field.... readers will be well informed of the latest research developments shaping the nature–nurture landscape."

Daniel P. Keating is Professor of Psychology, Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Research Professor at the Center for Human Growth and Development, and Faculty Associate in the Survey Research Center at the Institute for Social Research, all at the University of Michigan. He is also a Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), and a member of CIFAR's Successful Societies Program. Keating has held positions at the University of Minnesota, the University of Maryland, the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Education in Berlin, Germany, and the University of Toronto. He has occasionally appeared on television, including on the Phil Donohue Show, the Vision series on TV Ontario, and others. He has also been a guest on radio talk shows featured on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), focused mainly on his book (with Clyde Hertzman) Developmental Health and the Wealth of Nations (1999). Currently, much of his work focuses on the just-launched National Children's Study, for which he serves as an investigator in a number of capacities.
