This textbook for advanced and post graduate students sets out the contexts of children's and young people’s lives and encourages students to explore their complexities and contexts. The new edition has been substantially updated to discuss and analyse new topics and issues that have emerged over the last ten years, including: developments in the way that children and young people’s lives have been theorized and understood; their engagement in all aspects of contemporary cultures including the spiritual as well as the digital; the impact of recent political, economic, and social change. Drawing on insights from psychology, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, geography and education, each chapter challenges students’ assumptions and examines crucial issues in the field, such as participation, race, rights, law, transnational childhoods and sexuality. These different perspectives, drawing on different bodies of work, form a holistic picture of the multi-faceted lives of children and young people today.
Review Quotes
Laura Steckley, University of Strathclyde
“This book is chocked full of gems–pitch-perfect for masters students while still being of value for higher levels of scholarship. The robust integration of theorization and research evidence within each chapter, as well as the interdisciplinarity across chapters, will make this a go-to resource for my teaching and writing.”
Steve Bullock, University of Gloucestershire
“A ‘must have’ text for students who want an accessible, well-resourced text, on contemporary issues facing children and young people. Each stimulating chapter inspires the reader to develop ways of using and building on the work presented so clearly in this book.”
Sarah Richards, University of Suffolk
“This insightful edition offers contemporary, critical debate across a range of topical themes, which encapsulates the diversities of children and young people’s lived experiences.”
