Childhood in Question: Children, Parents and the State Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Childhood in Question explores the historical development, from the 1600s to the 1960s, of childhood experience. Drawing on artifacts as diverse as state papers, legal records, diaries, letters and oral sources, the authors probe a series of key issues: the definition of "the child" and the formation of identity; the emotional world of childhood; the changing attitudes of the state to family intimacy and parent-child relations; the sexuality of children; children and authority; and children and crime.

Synopsis:

This work tackles the emotions of children themselves to explore the historical development of childhood experience. It raises issues about previous historical and sociological approaches to the question of childhood.

About the Author

Anthony Fletcher is Professor of History at the University of Essex. Stephen Hussey is Essex County Lecturer in History at the University of Essex.
