Childhood is a brand new series of textbooks, co-published with The Open University which represents a coherent and integrated treatment of a wide range of topics and approaches, which will have a relevance to courses in childhood studies; sociology; psychology; anthropology and cultural studies as well as education and social policy.
The fourth volume, Changing Childhoods: Local and Global considers the status of children and society, and the significance of children's rights. Topics include the effects of poverty, ill-health and violence on children's well-being. Finally, the book illustrates the ways in which children and young people become engaged with social issues, including issues surrounding their status as children.
Illustrated throughout with both cross-cultural and historical examples, this text is ideal for a wide range of courses.
