About this book

This collection is an engaging exploration of how Bourdieu's key concepts - field, habitus and capital - help us re-think the status of childhood. The authors are committed to improving the social status and well-being of childhood in social, economic and political worlds that too often fail to accord children respect for their human rights.

Reviews

“The book will be well received by researchers seeking to become familiar with Bourdieu’s work. I am also convinced that it will become an important point of reference for scholars already familiar with the application of Bourdieu’s thinking. Alanen, Brooker and Berry’s edited collection will enable readers to better address and situate the complex issues children face in a quickly changing socio-technical world.” (Christina Rebekka Ergler, Children's Geographies, Vol. 15 (1), March, 2017)
