This book explores children's social relationships in and out of the classroom.

Chapters focus on the growing importance of children's friendships and how these influence social participation and development later on in life.

Issues such as peer rejection, bullying and adolescent development are analysed from both psychological and sociological perspectives.

The book concludes with a re-examination of cultural concepts of childhood, child development and the nature of children's autonomy.
