Summary
"The Developing Child in the 21st Century is an exploration of how ideas about childhood have changed over time and place. By introducing the work of the best-known theorists of child development, the author critically discusses and evaluates new and relevant global debates in this constantly emerging field." "Adopting a framework which includes sociological, cultural, anthropological, political, economic and historical views, this text sets out to paint a more global picture of childhood, and accurately describes the kind of life that is experienced by children right now, not only in the developed world but in many different countries and cultures. Teachers, lecturers and students taking courses in early childhood, psychology or sociology will find this essential and accessible reading."--BOOK JACKET
