William A. Corsaro’s groundbreaking work, The Sociology of Childhood, is widely acclaimed as the only text that thoroughly covers children and childhood from a sociological perspective―providing in-depth coverage of social theories of childhood, the peer cultures and social issues of children and youth, and children and childhood within the frameworks of culture and history. The Fourth Edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the latest research and the most pertinent information so readers can engage in powerful discussions on a wide array of topics.
