About this book

Children in Culture, Revisited follows on from the first volume, Children in Culture , and is composed of a range of chapters, newly written for this collection, which offer further fully inter- and multidisciplinary considerations of childhood as a culturally and historically constructed identity rather than a constant psycho-biological entity.
