This book should be read and used as a resource by all who engage in research with children, by members of institutional review boards, and by people who evaluate grant applications. It will also interest many others who are concerned about the well-being of children. The editors have recruited authors who differ in their areas of interest but not their uniformly high levels of expertise and knowledge. A welcome feature is the book's emphasis on the psychological ramifications of participation in research ... insightful book ... An important aid for researchers and reviewers is an appendix, "Points to Consider in Proposing or Reviewing Research Involving Children." * Claire B. Ernhart, Metrohealth Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio, New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 331, No. 6 *
both a timely and welcome book ... The timeliness of this book can not be overstated. What it clearly points to is the need for the establishment of clear ethical guidelines governing what will undoubtedly become, if it has not done so already, a growth area in research terms - the lives and experiences of our children. Grodin and Glantz are to be congratulated on providing us with a book that is both informative and at the same time challenging and thought provoking. Given the general nature of the issues addressed, it should be read by researchers of all disiplines. At a time when the advocacy of rights for our children is high on the political agenda, it will also have a wider appeal. * Stewart Asquith, Journal of Child Psychology/Psychiatry, Vol. 36, No. 7 *
