Attachment (Coll. Opus) The Beginnings of Affection Publication date : April 1, 1999

Almost from the moment they come into the world, babies start to learn. Rejecting the idea that babies are purely passive beings, Hubert Montagner shows the whole range of cognitive and social relationships which are established between a baby and its environment. He investigates the first few months of life which play a decisive role in the healthy development of an infant.

An ethologist by training, Professor Montagner is a leading figure in the field of infant behavioural research.
