Media reviews
'Chisholm, an expert on child development, an evolutionist, and a humanist, provides a much needed bridge between the disparate and often warring worlds of developmental psychology, cultural studies and evolutionary theory. This beautifully conceived, well-researched and very thoughtful book deserves a broad audience.' Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, author of The Woman that Never Evolved and Mother Nature
