This is an exciting and engagingly written book. The case studies are intriguing and the discussion of previous theories impeccable. Heather Montgomery This clear-sighted study of the history and present state of child-directed knowledge and practice should be compulsory reading for professionals working with children. Lawyers, doctors, psychologists, social workers, teachers and ndash; not to mention lawmakers and bureaucrats and ndash; will benefit by the challenge it offers. Marian Quartly Using diverse examples and applied case studies from across the globe, the authors demonstrate the relationships between contemporary understandings of childhood and historical, social, political and geographic factors. Rich in theory and extensively researched, it is a provocative, engaging and accessible contribution to the field. Andrew Singleton
