She is co-founder of the Gesell Institute of Child Development and collaborator or co-author of three dozen or so books, including The First Five Years of Life, Infant and Child in the Culture of Today, Child Rorschach Responses, and the series Your One-Year-Old through Your Ten- to Fourteen-Year-Old. She has one child, three grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Frances L. Ilg wrote numerous books, including The Child from Five to Ten, Youth: The Years from Ten to Sixteen, and Child Behavior, before her death in 1981. She was also a co-founder of the Gesell Institute of Child Development at Yale. Sidney M. Baker, M.D., former director of the Institute, had long been associated with the Institute's medical department.
This is a significantly revised edition of Youth: The Years From Ten to Sixteen , published in 1956. The revision follows the somewhat tedious format of the original, which gives a chronological analysis of white middle-class American youth. It differs from the original in that ages 15 and 16 are excluded and current issues such as smoking, sexual activity, and drugs are discussed. Comparing adolescents today with those of the 1950s, the new work finds, interestingly, that adolescents' attitudes have remained relatively constant. This is a timely work; the statistics collected should be sobering to many parents and teachers. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries. Kim Banks, Co lumbia Univ. Libs., New York
