Abstract:The author studied the development of a sample of Ganda infants while associated with the East African Institute of Social Research in Kampala (Uganda) in 1954-1955. The author describes the methods of infant care used by the Ganda during the first 15 months of a child's life and considers the effects of these methods on the child's psychosocial development. Part 1 deals chiefly with purposes and procedures. Part 2 gives a description of Ganda methods of infant care, contemporary and ancient, and the babies' response to them. Part 3 consists entirely of case studies - descriptions of the individual babies and their families. Part 4 is concerned with the psychology of infant development, focusing on the growth of attachment of the infant to its mother and to other members of the household.
