Children and youth perform both innocence and knowingness within Hitchcock's complex cinematic texts. Though the child often plays a small part, their significance - symbolically, theoretically, and philosophically - offers a unique opportunity to illuminate and interrogate the child presence within the cinematic complexity of Hitchcock's films.

MEDIA REVIEWS

" Children in the Films of Alfred Hitchcock amounts to a stunning collective appreciation by its editor and contributors of the significant role played by children and child-adults in Hitchcock - and of why the director's films, based on multiple points of view, favour 'liminality' over strict 'coherence'. This is cutting-edge film analysis of such Hitchcock masterworks as The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934 and 1956), Shadow of a Doubt , Strangers on a Train , The Trouble With Harry , and The Birds . Expert and illuminating." - Ken Mogg, contributor to A Companion to Alfred Hitchcock
