Global Childhoods in International Perspective gathers a wide spectrum of contributors from Europe, the U.S., South Asia, South Africa and Latin America, who, attuned with present dilemmas in the area of childhood studies, discuss some key theoretical and empirical aspects of child scholarship, such as identity, child wellbeing, child mobility and migration, intergenerational relationships and child abuse. Through these expert contributions, the book explores the many ways in which the relationship between universality and particularities of childhood plays an important role in describing global childhoods.

The book highlights childhood as a cross-cutting issue in global sociology with chapters on globalization and schooling in Burkina Faso, child abuse and neglect in India, identity and integration among children of African immigrants in France, social class mobility of Filipino migrant children in Italy and France, and an investigation into Kyrgyz childhoods.

Ideal reading for researchers, practitioners and students interested in both childhood studies and the other areas including community research, sociology of education, social stratification, and the sociology of migration.

A timely and comprehensive reading of the complexities of the local and global scenarios of contemporary childhood.

Dr. Ana Vergara, Associate Professor, Universidad de Santiago, Chile.

Baraldi and Rabello de Castro have edited a theoretically sophisticated text which explores the hegemony of the affluent world with respect to global policy and practice on children and childhood. There is an impressive range of country based empirical research on themes that link epistemology, age, agency and identity to the contemporary globalisation of childhood.

Dr Michael Wyness, Reader, Centre for Education Studies, University of Warwick.

This collection by Baraldi and Rabello de Castro brings together key thinkers on the sociological study of childhood from across the continents of the globe. Thereby, the book offers a rich cornucopia of ideas and analyses from a diverse and global set of academics. Issues under scrutiny include processes of globalisation, children’s identity formation, migration, poverty, sexual abuse, education and health. The collection explores the dilemma of the universality of children’s experiences against the significance of context, and the importance to recognise the diversity of childhoods. The editors bring together the range of contributions through a coherent set of commentaries. This collection is an urgent read for those interested in the lives lived by children across the world and for professionals in health, education, psychology and social work. Reading this will expand your conceptual horizons and revisit afresh the ways we understand children.
