The ever changing face of childhood,
This review is from: The Story of Childhood: Growing Up in Modern Britain (Paperback)
I'd been considering studying Childhood and Youth Studies with the Open University and decided to give this book a go as a brief insight into the concept of childhood. I found this book gripping, insightful and was often amazed at some of the facts presented in this book. The author brings together a range of ideas outlined in the likes of other books such as Neil Postman's 'The Disappearance of Childhood' and ultimately it is left to the reader to draw their own conclusions. A fantastic look at the changing face of childhood.
