A timely and comprehensive reading of the complexities of the local and global scenarios of contemporary childhood.
Dr. Ana Vergara, Associate Professor, Universidad de Santiago, Chile.
Baraldi and Rabello de Castro have edited a theoretically sophisticated text which explores the hegemony of the affluent world with respect to global policy and practice on children and childhood. There is an impressive range of country based empirical research on themes that link epistemology, age, agency and identity to the contemporary globalisation of childhood.
Dr Michael Wyness, Reader, Centre for Education Studies, University of Warwick.
This collection by Baraldi and Rabello de Castro brings together key thinkers on the sociological study of childhood from across the continents of the globe. Thereby, the book offers a rich cornucopia of ideas and analyses from a diverse and global set of academics. Issues under scrutiny include processes of globalisation, children’s identity formation, migration, poverty, sexual abuse, education and health. The collection explores the dilemma of the universality of children’s experiences against the significance of context, and the importance to recognise the diversity of childhoods.
