    "Even in these increasingly homogenous times, there is still a remarkable amount of variation in the ways infants are cared for. This work travels the globe to reveal how the babies live in a range of places and cultures. Photographs coupled with interviews with specialists in the various societies, reveal details of life in Sioux, Manchu, Patagonian and many other communities. In five sections covering bathing, clothing, carrying, sleeping and family, this work offers an introduction to child-rearing traditions around the world. The authors have also written Abrams' "Babies: History, Art, and Folklore"."
