Summary
"Anthropology of Childhood and Youth is written for specialists in several fields, including child and family studies. Incorporating a range of countries, it familiarizes readers with the behaviors and cultural backgrounds of adults and the youth they live or work with. Geoffrey Vitale proposes a flexible tour of human society, introducing points of view, strategies, and approaches that go beyond the purely domestic, both in time and place, and with new ideas, new theories, and diverse forms of comprehension. The inclusion of many helpful notes, and reference to a wide sweep of specialists, offers the reader access to a range of viewpoints. Ultimately, Anthropology of Childhood and Youth opens doors to the ways in which people understand, raise, and educate children and youth according to the culture, lifestyle, politics, and economics of their place of origin."--Back cover
