Product description


'Gill Valentine's work on children's and young people's geographies is exemplary. Her insights, drawn from human geography but ranging over a wide interdisciplinary field, throw light both on adult preoccupations about children and youth and the ways in which young people themselves make sense of their worlds. This is an important book, which should be read by anyone interested in children and young people, childhood and youth studies.' Professor Debbie Epstein, Cardiff University, UK 'Valentine deconstructs theories about fear in public space and the supposed incompetence of children. These results (and also the methodology used) are of great importance not only for her research in England but for any research in other contexts...a very formative and informative book...' Social and Cultural Geography 'This is an enthralling read based on research that helps clarify our understanding of what is happening to young people with respect to a crucical aspect of their lives.' Youth & Policy '...a very lucid account of how children are perceived within their local landscapes...the book is impressive in its execution and completeness...there is much to think about from this well-written and accessible study of British families and their cultural geography.' Journal of Family Studies 'I was absorbed by this book and could see it being a good resource for psychologists.' Debate: Division of Educational and Child Psychologists, The British Psychological Society
