520    In this ground-breaking work, leading Austrian sexologist 
       Ernest Borneman describes each phase of the psychosexual 
       development of children from conception to age eight. 
       Based on extensive research, Childhood Phases of Maturity 
       overturns the prevalent assumption that children are 
       asexual innocents, for whom sexuality is an inconceivable 
       aspect of life until the onset of puberty. In fact, 
       Borneman argues, the opposite is true: sexuality is 
       indisputably a fact of human development from conception; 
       it manifests itself in children in various ways, including
       their games, rich fantasy life, need for skin contact, and
       masturbation. Research shows that the natural expression 
       of sexuality in childhood is vital to the later healthy 
       development of adult sexuality. 
520 8  Borneman divides his discussion of each successive age 
       group into two sections: the first describes healthy 
       sexual development at a particular age; the second 
       examines the pathologies resulting from aberrations in 
       sexual growth at that age. Borneman demonstrates that the 
       roots of adult neuroses and paraphilias can often be 
       traced back to disturbances in sexual development during 
       childhood. Perhaps the most important influence on a 
       child's psychosexual well-being is the parents' attitudes 
       toward their own sexuality. Childhood Phases of Maturity 
       is an authoritative, clearly written reference book, which
       will serve parents, educators, and health-care 
       professionals as a valuable source of information on the 
       sexual developmental psychology of children.
