Synopses & Reviews
Growing interest in research on childhood can be regarded as an important factor in what has been learned about the long-term processes of change. Certainly research on childhood has radically transformed history as an academic discipline. This is especially true for historiography in South East Europe, where social history and historical anthropology is still marginal. This book presents 18 contributions; topics include the upbringing of female children in Serbia, rural childhoods in mountain regions of Austria and Greece, children and war, and children and migration. It is the first book to provide an international readership with an overall picture on childhood in southeastern Europe.
