Description:

This book provides an assessment of theories and empirical evidence about children's social worlds, the nature of childhood in contemporary societies, and how these are related to people's perceptions of children and childhood. The social context of contemporary childhood is delineated, children's experiences in different societies and societal subgroups compared, and the impact of social, political, and economic change on children's social position and well-being evaluated.
