How are children raised in different cultures? What is the role of children in society? How are families and communities structured around them? Now available in a revised edition, this book sets out to answer these questions, and argues that our common understandings about children are narrowly culture-bound. Enriched with anecdotes from ethnography and the daily media, the book examines family structure, reproduction, profiles of children's caretakers within family or community, their treatment at different ages, their play, work, schooling, and transition to adulthood. The result is a nuanced and credible picture of childhood in different cultures, past and present. Organised developmentally, moving from infancy through to adolescence and early adulthood, this new edition reviews and catalogues the findings of over 100 years of anthropological scholarship dealing with childhood and adolescence, drawing on over 750 newly added sources, and engaging with newly emerging issues relevant to the world of childhood today.

* A multidisciplinary text, jargon-free and theoretically transparent, with references to history, psychology, primate studies and evolutionary biology, so readers from neighbouring disciplines can enjoy the book

* Richly illustrated with evocative photographs

* A broad synthesis of the literature, with an encyclopaedic bibliography and vivid anecdotes from ethnography and the daily press
