Children's Places examines the ways in which children and adults, from their different vantage-points in society, negotiate the 'proper place' of children in both social and spatial terms. It looks at some of the recognised constructions of children, including perspectives from cultures that do not distinguish children as a distinct category of people, as well as examining contexts for them, from schools and kindergartens to inner cities and war-zones. The result is a much-needed insight into the notions of inclusion and exclusion, the placement and displacement of children within generational ranks and orders, and the kinds of places that children construct for themselves.
Based on in-depth ethnographic research from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Review:

'Ethnographically rich, this book provides fascinating insight into the subtleties of children's own engagement with the places and space designated for childhood' - Allison James, Director of the Centre for the Social Study of Childhood, University of Hull

'[The book] provides a readable, enjoyable and ethnographically rich consideration of the physical and metaphorical 'places' that children inhabit in a variety of cultural contexts.' - Children's Geographies

'In addition to the strength of each article, I found this volume, which has not recieved the attention it deserves, to be particularly compelling and stimulating.' – Ethnos

"Children's Places is an important contribution to the anthropological study of children and childhood, both of which have been sadly unerrepresented in anthropological research and concomitant literature." -- Marcia Mikulak, University of North Dakota, Journal of Anthropological Research

' The book is a positive addition to comparative study in the field...' - Anthropology in Action
