Editorial Reviews


'This is a superb introduction to the fascinating field of childhood studies. A series of well chosen entries provide concise summaries of key ideas, and accessible introductions to some highly complex issues. The authors brilliantly weave together their different themes with their use of cross-referencing, so that the whole is even richer than the individual parts.

I would recommend it to any beginning student of Childhoods Studies, as well as more advanced ones' - Nigel Thomas, Professor of Childhood

& Youth Research, University of Central Lancashire

Format: Paperback
This is an early example of what I suspect will be many academic texts in childhood studies as the discipline continues to grow around the world. The discipline draws on many developing fields; child rights, children and the law, child public health, the social sciences as they relate to childhood, children and public policy and so on. It also has a solid base of practitioners in these fields and the growing practice of child advocacy.
The book is a must for anyone teaching childhood studies at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
