"Relevant and easily understood. Provide good understanding of the issues" Mary Andall, Canterbury Christ Church University.
"An excellent set of books. Perfect for any first or second year undergraduate student wishing to find an interactive, contemporary and theoretically stimulating text." Marie Lavelle, Plymouth University.
"This excellent work provides an important, timely, international survey of childhood studies. Moral panics about children are displaced by scholarly reviews of theory and research from children's histories, geographies, development, social anthropology and socio-cultural studies. The reader is drawn in by thought provoking case-studies and activities". Dr Dorothy Moss, Leeds Metropolitan University
"Understanding Childhood brings together leading figures across the field and sets out, from a range of disciplinary perspectives, some of the central issues facing research on children and childhood. The volume has superb clarity and incisive analysis. It will be widely read by students and lecturers alike." Dr David Oswell, Goldsmiths, University of London
