Review:

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2010

'a very impressive collection that covers a breathtaking amount of ground" - Social Sciences Review

'The Palgrave Handbook of Childhood Studies is...an excellent book...an indispensable working tool for (the next generation of) childhood researchers.' - Childhood

'a rich compendium of current research a journey through the highways and alleyways of a burgeoning area It is the kind of book I want handy as a reference for both teaching and research. An attractive anthology for use in a course on childhood at the advanced undergraduate or graduate levels, it provides multiple tools for navigating theoretical, methodological, and epistemological terrains of research in 'new' childhood studies.' - Sara Dorow, Canadian Journal of Sociology

'for everyone involved in child research this is a must' - Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association

'a very impressive collection that covers a breathtaking amount of ground' - Tom Cockburn, Sozialwissenschaftliche Literatur Rundschau

'The Handbook of Childhood Studies is an excellent resource: comprehensive in scope, interdisciplinary in content, well-chosen topics, with thoughtful essays by major figures in the field. It's a treasure!'

-Barrie Thorne, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley, USA; co-editor of Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research

'This collection of essays covers an enormous range of topics on children and childhood and both reviews and extends the thinking within these sub-fiields.The Handbook of Childhood Studies is brimming full of insights and will help to shape theoretical and empirical agendas for researchers within the ever-broadening field of childhood studies.'

- Michael Wyness, Associate Professor in Childhood Studies, University of Warwick, UK

'The Handbook of Childhood Studies orchestrates the arrival, staying power, and significance of Childhood Studies as a field. With a proliferation of creative ideas, a provocative and thoughtful organization ... the Handbook is deliciously kaleidoscopic - turn one way for rigorous yet consistently fresh views on a broad array of topics that shape the social studies of childhood, turn again and it sparks all kinds of questions and themes for future research'.

- Cindi Katz, Professor of Geography, Graduate Center, The City University of New York, USA

'This is a very significant book which assembles the work of many of the leading interdisciplinary figures in the field of childhood studies. The contents are well organised and the arguments both coherent and compelling. It will be difficult for any future scholar in this area of research to sidestep this major contribution to our understanding'

-Professor Chris Jenks, Vice Chancellor Brunel University, UK
