This edited collection opens up new avenues for exploring children’s development as contextual, provisional and locally produced, rather than a unitary, universal and consistent process. Drawing on work by Burman, James and Prout, this book builds on existing debates around notions of ‘difference’ and focuses on novel applications of theory and method. It interrogates the notion of ‘different childhoods’ as theorized and critiqued within the sociology of childhood, critical developmental psychology, childhood studies and critical criminology and is essential reading for students in these fields wishing to examine notions of development.
