Abstract

About the book: Research with Children is a unique resource book on the methodology of childhood research. Leading and new researchers within the social studies of childhood discuss central questions of epistemology and methodology, demonstrating the links between theory and practice. The theoretical and practical questions are set out in a clear and well-argued fashion and will therefore appeal both to the newcomer to childhood studies and to experienced researchers in the field.
From the introduction: Chapter 1 provides a broad overview of the shifts which have and still are taking place within developmental psychology, noting the obstacles and epistemological barriers which such changes confront.
