Child Care and Training was first published in 1928. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
In this completely revised edition, a book with a long and successful history is brought up to date in keeping with current concepts of child development and growth. This basic handbook has been used and enthusiastically endorsed by thousands of teachers, students, doctors, parents, and nurses.
The present volume retains the time-tested plan of previous editions, but much of the material has been revised and new information, including a whole chapter on Personality, Adjustment, and Mental Health, has been added. All of the illustrations are new also.
The authors of the original volume, Marion L. Faegre and John E. Anderson, were joined in the preparation of this revision by Dale B. Harris, Dr. Anderson's successor as director of the Institute of Child Welfare at the University of Minnesota. In his long and distinguished career Dr. Anderson has served as president of the American Psychological Association and of the Society for Research in Child Development, as editor of the Psychological Bulletin and as advisory editor of Parents' Magazine and Childhood Education. Mrs. Faegre, author of numerous other works on child development, served for many years as consultant in parent education in the U. S. Children's Bureau, Washington, D. C.
Whether this book is used as a text for teaching or as a reference or guidebook for the individual, it admirably fills the need for a practical, authoritative source of instruction and advice.

Having largely given up on a career in film, Edward Yang had been working as a computer engineer for several years when he saw Herzog's Aguirre, Wrath of God. Inspired to return to film, Yang, along with a handful of other filmmakers including the great Hou Hsiao-hsien, went on to found the Taiwanese New Wave of the early 1980s.
Film critic John Anderson's Edward Yang offers a comprehensive overview of the work of the writer-director--already considered one of the most important filmmakers of the past twenty years--from his breakthrough feature That Day, on the Beach to the epic Yi-Yi. Rooted in questions about what it means to be Taiwanese, Yang's films reveal the complexity of life within the island's patchwork culture. Anderson identifies the key narrative strategies, formal devices, moral vision, and sociopolitical concerns shot through Yang's films. He explains what makes these films so distinctive by pinpointing the specific qualities of Yang's style and outlook.
This book explains how intelligence can be introduced into digital telephone networks. Beginning by outlining the basic principles of Intelligent Networks (IN), it tracks the application of the IN principle of separation of the service logic for advanced telephony services from the underlying call control infrastructures. The book explains how large public networks are updated to incorporate IN principles for advanced telephony services. This is illustrated using many practical examples which are set against a background of following the ETSI standards within the overall ITU-T framework of recommendations. This book is targeted at postgraduate telecommunications students, or engineers requiring a concise and practical introduction to IN.
These brief case histories deal with the everyday behavior of normal children between the ages of two and six. Each history includes a brief characterization of the salient features of the case, a description of the home situation, a discussion of developmental history, a history of the adjustments of the child, and where possible, the treatment suggestion and the later history of the case. A valuable feature of this revised edition is a follow-up of more than seventy cases after a lapse of four years.
