The Australian Aboriginal Child: Bibliography and Abstracts. Part I: Physical and Intellectual Development.
Boyce, M. W., Comp.
This abstract bibliography concentrates on aspects of the physical and intellectual development of the Australian Aboriginal child, although educational, sociological and other issues are also raised in a number of the entries included. Most of the 57 entries are journal articles, although some are book chapters, reports and conference papers. A brief introduction to the bibliography outlines the major issues discussed and the entries in which these issues are raised. Generally, the alphabetically arranged bibliography consists of entries related to: (1) physical development and health; (2) the preschool intervention project at Bourke (including philosophy, method, and summary of the project; first-year and follow-up results; and criticisms); (3) language development; (4) conservation and classification studies; (5) discussion of the nature/nurture controversy as it pertains to the Australian Aboriginal child; and (6) intellectual development and thought processes.
