Editorial Reviews


'For anyone interested in perceptions of childhood and children's use of public space, this book, the first of it's kind, is an interesting and valuable contribution to an emerging and increasingly interesting knowledge base. A fascinating and detailed look at how children from widely differing pats of the world spend their free time and use public open spaces.' - Issy Cole-Hamilton, Policy and Research Officer, Children's Play Council for Children's Society published in association with the National Children's Bureau

'This is an important book ... It provides an interesting and thought-provoking read, and offers a good base for what is an important developing sub discipline in geographical thinking. It is pleasing to see the quality of research projects upon which the discourses are based.' - International Journal of Population Geography
