'This is a superb introduction to the fascinating field of childhood studies. A series of well chosen entries provide concise summaries of key ideas, and accessible introductions to some highly complex issues. The authors brilliantly weave together their different themes with their use of cross-referencing, so that the whole is even richer than the individual parts. I would recommend it to any beginning student of Childhoods Studies, as well as more advanced ones' -" Nigel Thomas, Professor of Childhood
