Whether highly controversial or taken for granted, pictures of children are everywhere, from magazines, newspapers, and advertisements, to greetings cards and the Internet. Using images from a wide variety of sources, Picturing Childhood looks at the endless array of pictures of children designed to entertain, shock, amuse or persuade us to buy. It considers popular imagery in relation to news, entertainment, education, welfare, charity and consumerism, and asks: what implications does this have for the ways in which children themselves are treated? The book is a stimulating and original read for all those concerned with the uses and abuses of childhood and children today.

"Patricia Holland has a huge, eclectic collection of pictures of children and a terrific project: to write a serious commentary on the nature of childhood based on her collection... the many teachers and other educators who read this book, as I hope they will, must do their own thinking about what it means for them...this book comes as an unsettling professional challenge...Reading it, we must ask ourselves some difficult questions..." Mary Jane Drummond - University of Cambridge (The Times Higher Education Supplement)
