Présentation de l'éditeur

In the early twentieth century, affection between parents and their children was discouraged—psychologists thought it would create needy kids, and doctors thought it would spread infectious disease. It took a revolution in psychology to overturn these beliefs and prove that touch ensures emotional and intellectual health.

In Love at Goon Park, Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Blum charts this profound cultural shift by tracing the story of Harry Harlow—the man who studied neglect and its life-altering consequences on primates in his lab. The biography of both a man and an idea, Love at Goon Park ultimately invites us to examine ourselves and the way we love.

Merci :)

I was wondering what love was since I have never felt love in my life. This thought first came from a religious perspective which states that without love you have nothing. I don't think that I have any ability to love. I bonded with my father rather than my mother, but this was a very limited relationship because just as I had never seen an example of familial love, neither had my parents. I kept reaching out to my father but with no success.

I have a good memory of my early childhood, and this book reinforced what I had already suspected. While I took the blame for all of their disappointments in me, it was they who made me what I was.

I lived to get away from my mother. And I had decided by the time that I graduated from high school that I could not put another child through what I had been through. I would have been exactly like her because I had never seen an example of a child being loved.

My mother did not want to be a mother. This book explains why I am the way that I am today, anxious and isolated and not being able to socialize.

The learning disabilities that I had were monumental, but at least I lived during a time where I was not labeled.

I scored poorly on the Stanford Binet test and overheard my mother say to my dad that she guessed that I would never amount to nothing.

This book is so important, and if it makes women feel guilty, so be it. How the mother treats the child determines the child's future.

I love animals, and the thought of using them for testing makes me sick. But if testing animals will make people understand what they are doing to their children, it is worth it and PETA be damned.

This is a phenomenal book about the necessity of love and exactly what that means scientifically. What is necessary from a mother and how should the child be pushed into the world with the mother's backing ? What are the biochemical effects and what other sources can bring back a poorly mothered child ? What relatives and friends and environment can make a difference ? Watching monkey families in tough circumstances can tell us what we need to know.
Harry Harlow's real life is set against the primate family situations in this compelling story of love's basic place in our lives set against the psychology of the day including other giants such as Bowlby. It makes one challenge and examine the relationships in their lives.

"Love At Goon Park" is a fascinating look at a man and his work. Deborah Blum provides the reader with an extensive and sobering background before exploring Harry Harlow's research. Did you know that as recently as the 1950s, psychologists were trying to convince parents that too much cuddling and "love" were bad for their children? Harlow, with his revolutionary experiments on baby monkeys, was bucking the conventional wisdom of his time. He was trying to say that mother's love mattered, that touch mattered, that affection mattered. His peers didn't want to hear this, but Harlow's research finally forced the profession to listen.
Blum's writing is never dry, never boring. She writes with amazing flair and humanity. You'll feel that you are getting to know this person, Harry Harlow. Even more, you'll feel you are there in the lab with Harlow and his graduate students, waiting to see how the baby monkeys will react to the latest experiment. What will we learn? Will anyone listen? Blum cares, and you'll care too.
You can't help but feel for the monkeys when you read this book. And Blum doesn't gloss over the issue of abuse, especially mental, that was visited on our primate cousins in the name of science. "Goon Park" takes an unflinching look at Harry Harlow, warts and all. I think her treatment of all the issues was fair and balanced.
I highly recommend "Love At Goon Park." It's well-written, interesting and important.

A great read unlike some psychology texts that you slog endlessly to get through. To a beginning psychology student it is fascinating how revolutionary and difficult it was for Harlow to prove to his fellow psychologists the now obvious attributes of mother love and how ironic that such a flawed idiosyncratic curmudgeon was the one to do it. An easy five stars!!

High recommend this book--anyone who is interested in the development of psychology as a field, the research pertaining to attachment and love and a behind the scenes look into the faces behind the theories should give this a read.
