In recent time a number of formal networks of child research have been established. One of such recently formed networks is the IUAES Commission on children youth and childhood. Majority of the contributors to this volume are members of this newly established network. One of the initial and most important aims of this network is to encourage research about children in which children are themselves active participants as opposed to being just objects of study as they were most often in the past. This idea has been clearly manifested in the writings of the contributors to the volume. The book is a must for all students of social sciences for understanding new approaches to childhoods in changing social contexts. The volume will promote networks of researchers who can develop appropriate concepts relating to childhoods along the line of new approaches to childhoods. Administrators planners and policy makers engaged in child development/welfare would benefit much from the volume. 214 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 65523
