Childhoods at the Intersection of the Local and the Global examines the imposition of the modern Western notion of childhood, which is now deemed as universal, on other cultures and explores how local communities react to these impositions in various ways such as manipulation, outright rejection and acceptance. The book discusses childhoods in different regions of the world and boasts a range of contributors from several academic disciplines such as Sociology, Social Work, Education, Anthropology, Criminology and Human Rights, who are experts on the regions they discuss. The book argues against the notion of a universal childhood and illustrates that different societies around the world have different notions of childhood. This book is recommended reading for students, scholars and practitioners working with children in the Global South as well as internationally.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book provides an interesting mix of theory, history and case studies all of which concern the ways that childhoods are changing in response to globalisation. Its international focus and emphasis on the full age range of childhood will make it invaluable

for those in Development Studies, Early Years, as well as those with a more general interest in Childhood Studies." - Children & Society
