This edited volume is one of the first fully interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies of childhood as understood as a culturally and historically contingent identity, instead of as a constant psycho-biological object. Chapters include work on childhood in children's literature, film, psychology, history, literature and in relation to computer games. The book is framed by the editor's introduction which sets out theoretical approaches to childhood and explains how and why this book works from a consistent (de)constructivist approach.
