Summary "Myths of Childhood calls into question the degree to which early childhood affects psychological development. The principle of the primacy of childhood - the basic assumption that childhood experiences compose the crucial factor in psychological development - has been widely accepted for centuries. The author employs empirically based research to critically examine the primacy of childhood and the related assumption that early childhood experiences are more significant in psychological development than the experiences that occur in the later years of childhood."--Jacket
