About this book

Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History is the first book to innovatively combine the history of childhood and youth with the history of emotions, combining multiple national, colonial, and global perspectives.

Reviews

“This strong collection of essays achieves this goal and it is to be hoped that it will spark greater cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches. … This highly recommended book points the way to future research and it is to be hoped that this will give more space to the voices and actions of children themselves and to the importance of the figure of the child in other historiographies.” (Leticia Fernández-Fontecha Rumeu, Childhood in the Past, Vol. 10 (1), June, 2017) 

“This volume forms both a comprehensive introduction to the histories of childhood, youth and emotion and a resource for those already deep in the field to explore a range of methodological tools and concepts to support their work. It is also, generally, a good read: accessible enough to be read for enjoyment, while remaining conceptually challenging and intellectually stimulating.” (Amy McKernan, History of Education, Vol. 47 (3), July, 2017)

“Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History is an edited volume seeking new vantage points from which to explore the history of childhood in the modern era. Most of its twelve chapters take a global and, when possible, transnational perspective, and all draw on the growing body of research in the history of emotions. … a much-needed contribution to the history of childhood and youth.” (Oscar Ax, The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth, Vol. 10 (1), 2017)

“Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History: National, Colonial and Global Perspectives … is an article collection from within the field of the history of emotions, published as part of the Palgrave Studies in the History of the Emotions series. … this is a worthwhile essay collection, with each chapter in itself proving interesting without being overwhelming. It is also a collection that might start some useful research thinking for scholars of children’s and young adult literature.” (Anthony Pavlik, IRSCL Reviews, irscl.com, August, 2016)
