Originally published in 1984, a major purpose of this book was to bring together in a single volume, work that reflects the wide range of interests that social and behavioural scientists have in play, development and the environment.

The intent of the book was to refine and extend concepts and methodologies within and beyond one's usual area of study.

The idea was that this formula and direction would yield novel information and fresh insights.

The volume encompasses a wealth of topics concerning structural, functional, and pragmatic aspects of play during early childhood and childhood, and includes strong emphasis on methodological as well as substantive concerns.

It was hoped that the chapters here would inspire a new generation of research extending knowledge both in theoretical and applied areas.
