A chapter in a study in which high profile researchers contribute to the burgeoning field of the social studies of childhood with original and often surprising perspectives and approaches. With chapters on children's agency in small worlds and childhood's placement in large scale relationships, the book shows not only the variety of childhood(s), but also suggests that much is common in a generational context.
