about

This inspiring new book explores a range of sociological approaches to researching the fascinating lives and social worlds of children, and the phenomenon of childhood. In doing so, it reviews competing theoretical positions on childhood discussing issues such as poverty, abuse and rights, as well as ethical issues relating to research with children.
