Learning from the Children : Childhood, Culture and Identity in a Changing World Hardback
Edited by Jacqueline Waldren, Ignacy-Marek Kaminski
Part of the New Directions in Anthropology series
Children and youth, regardless of their ethnic backgrounds, are experiencing lifestyle choices their parents never imagined and contributing to the transformation of ideals, traditions, education, and adult-child power dynamics.
As a result of the advances in technology and media as well as the effects of globalization, the transmission of social and cultural practices from parents to children is changing.
Based on a number of qualitative studies, this book offers insights into the lives of children and youth in Britain, Japan, Spain, Israel/Palestine, Pakistan, and Ethiopia.
Attention is focused on the child's perspective within the social-power dynamics involved in child-adult relations, which reveals the dilemmas of policy, planning, and parenting in a changing world.
