It is refreshing to see a book such as this which is both broad in its conceptualization of the field of child research and deep in its focus. The volume's editors are paragons of awareness when it comes to the need for interdisciplinary research and theory to illuminate the lives and experience of children. (Professor James Garbarino 2014-01-13)
The book covers a satisfying and unprecedentedly wide range of research relating to childhood. The contributors include many eminent international scholars of childhood, making the book a valuable resource for child researchers. Child advocates will also find the book to be invaluable in their efforts to improve children’s well-being, and to change policies and practices for the better.
(Emeritus Professor Anne Smith 2014-01-13)
A really scintillating collection that will provide a lasting perspective on child studies - stimulating and comprehensive! (Professor Jonathan Bradshaw 2014-01-13)
This book is wide ranging and comprehensive in its coverage of research with and about children and childhood, with an international dimension brought by the large number of contributors. The chapters are well organised and clearly titled, making the book useful and highly informative for those who wish to dip in to read about a particular topic. Overall the book provides both depth and range, and provides an excellent, thorough resource for those who wish to sensitively and thoughtfully carry out research into children’s experiences and lives.
(Lorraine Hansford The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health)
