Attachment The Beginnings of Affection Publication date : April 1, 1988

Almost from the minute they come into the world, babies start to learn. Rejecting the idea that babies are purely passive beings, H. 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 Hubert Montagner is a leading figure in the field of infant behavioural research.
