      Product Description

      In this book Chris Jenks looks at what the ways in which we construct our image of childhood can tell us about ourselves. After a general discussion of the social construction of childhood, the book is structured around three examples of the way the image of the child is played out in society:

      • the history of childhood from medieval times through the enlightenment 'discovery' of childhood to the present
      • the mythology and reality of child abuse and society's response to it
      • the 'death' of childhood in cases such as the James Bulger murder in which the child itself becomes the perpetrator of evil.

      Part of the highly successful Key Ideas series, this book gives students a concise, provocative insight into some of the controlling concepts of our culture.
