Neoliberal logics of government shaping childhood today produce market-based frameworks for understanding childhood risks. In this timely work, Nadesan argues that these frameworks encourage affluent parents to pursue individualized technologies of the self to reduce risks posed to their children's future success.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Majia Holmer Nadesan's Governing Childhood into the 21st Century examines the biopolitical risks of children by a neoliberal individualized risk management regime to reveal the new vulnerabilities and dependencies of the poor under social welfare. This is a thoughtful, carefully-argued treatise that ought to become required reading for students of social policy and education." - Michael A. Peters, Professor of Educational Policy Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
