From the Back Cover

Where can we draw the line between childhood and adulthood? To what extent is childhood a social construction? How do children make sense of their own social worlds? And do children have control over their social environments?

Childhood and Society 2e explores these questions and key sociological debates to provide a thorough introduction to the sociology of childhood. The second edition takes account of cutting edge research and shows how contemporary practices are impacting on childhood in today's world. In particular, the book:

• Gives clear guidance on how children have been, and continue to be, theorized
• Shows how technology shapes children's play, communication and cultures
• Discusses international case studies that reflect on childhood in a global age
• Assesses the ethical and methodological issues in researching children's lives
• Includes a new chapter on child labour, reflecting on the relationship between work and schooling

With fresh insights into research, theory and policy, this text takes a truly global view on controversial issues in the field, from poverty and children's rights to the media and consumerism. It is an indispensable text for students of sociology, childhood studies, education and social policy.
