9780060906306: Touching: The Human Significance of the Skin

A moving and absorbing examination of the importance of tactile interaction - touching - on all facets of human development. "Should be read ... by anyone who has a skin." From "Marriage" "Touch is a vital necessity from the dawn of sensory awareness, well before birth. It remains till the end the simplest and most direct way of relating - the last human sacrament. Read this deeply significant book." Dr Montagu may have written his most important book in a long and productive career. Poet Walt Whitman wrote "Camerado, this is no book,/ Who touches this touches a man."
