clear and compelling language, Australian psychologist Robin
Grille takes on the Herculean task of exploring the childhood
origins of human action and choice, from its most violent to its
most humane, for individuals as well as for families and
countries, and for the most simple to the most complex behavior -
and against all odds, succeeds. This is the book that could save
the world, if we can only pay attention.
An essential companion for the "natural
parent", the newly-published Parenting for a Peaceful
World is a fascinating look at how child-rearing customs have
shaped societies and major world events. It reveals how children
adapt to different parenting styles and describes how these early
experiences underpin the adults they become. This wide-ranging
book draws on revolutionary new research to argue that the
safeguarding of children's emotional development is the key to
creating a more peaceful and harmonious world.
