CHOICE Review

Editors Bornstein (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development), Davidson (Emory School of Medicine), Keyes (Emory Univ. and Rollins School of Public Health), and Moore (the nonprofit organization Child Trends) are all associated with the Center for Child Well Being, founded in 1999 with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Although this volume deals with the entire life span, this book focuses on children's health and well-being. The series ("Crosscurrents in Contemporary Psychology") prologue begins by stating, "Contemporary psychological science is increasingly diversified, pluralistic, and specialized, and most psychologists venture beyond the confines of their substantive specialty only rarely," but this book clearly contradicts that statement. The contributors--mostly psychologists with a few pediatricians and sociologists--venture into reproductive health, nutrition, and physical activity as well as their traditional topics of cognitive and socio-affective health. The intent of this "crosscurrent" series is to provide a forum for investigators in diverse fields to join forces on topics of mutual interest that defy the usual disciplinary boundaries. This text does that well. Health promotion is receiving increased attention in academic and research settings, and this book should serve as a useful beginning resource in that field. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates. J. P. McKinney emeritus, Michigan State University
