Description:

Sociologists can choose from an increasingly diverse range of methods in their research with children. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the methodological innovations and development in the field, both qualitative and quantitative. An ideal text for undergraduates and graduates in the social sciences, it brings together original perspectives from around Europe. The contributors explore many ideas: childhood as text; historical and phenomenological perspectives; ethnography and social action; techniques and technicians; macro perspectives in childhood research; policy and practice in childhood research.
