The SAGE Encyclopedia of Children and Childhood Studies

Four Volume Set
Edited by:

May 2020 | SAGE Publications Ltd
The SAGE Encyclopedia of Children and Childhood Studies navigates our understanding of childhood and what it means to evolve. On the one hand, some see this as a distinct stage or period, while on the other hand many argue that this is a relatively recent social construct. This discipline can be considered as a unified approach to the study of children and youth across academic fields including the arts, humanities, social sciences and law.  
This five-volume encyclopedia will cover a wide range of themes and topics, including: 
Childhood and the Family
Child Development
Childhood Research Methods
History of Childhood
Rights of the Child
Social Construction of Childhood
Sociology of Childhood
Theories and Theorists
This interdisciplinary encyclopedia will be of interest to students and researchers in psychology, sociology, social welfare and cultural studies.
