John M. Musser Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, Yale University, and Richard March Hoe Professor of Psychology and Education, Emeritus, Teachers College, Columbia University - Edmund W. Gordon

Edited under the guidance of one of our foremost scholars of developmental-psychopathology and resilience, this excellent collection of essays virtually encircles extant perspectives on knowledge and thought concerning resilience and vulnerability in childhood. Encompassing the interaction between the biological and the social, and between factors intrinsic to the person and those associated with the environment, this volume is a new standard reference source for those of us concerned with Resilience and Vulnerability.
