Outlining sociology’s distinctive contribution to childhood studies and our understanding of contemporary children and childhood, The Sociology of Children, Childhood and Generation provides a thought provoking and comprehensive account of the connections between the macro worlds of childhood and the micro worlds of children’s everyday lives. Examining children’s involvement in areas such as the labour market, family life, education, play and leisure, the book provides an effective balance between understanding childhood as a structural phenomenon, and recognising children as meaning makers actively involved in constructing, co-constructing and reconstructing their everyday lives. Through the concept of 'generagency' Madeleine Leonard offers a model for examining and illuminating how structure and agency are activated within interdependent relationships influenced by generational positioning. This framework provides a conceptual tool for thinking about the continuities, challenges and changes that impact on how childhood is lived and experienced.

Over the past twenty years, the sociology of childhood has developed fast. In the UK and Europe, many studies now focus on the child as social agent, and the notion of the child as social construction - varying across times and places - has gained in popularity. However, in the UK at least, the development of theory has lagged behind. Childhood in Generational Perspective moves forward, intensively considering the value of generation in helping us rethink childhood. Relations between children and adults (parents, teachers and others) are between people belonging to different cohorts, having differing cultural experiences and identities. But these relations are also influenced more generally by the generational order of society. The authors consider these ideas and how they intersect. This important book contains new perspectives on theoretical issues from distinguished European scholars, providing challenging reading for teachers and students of the sociology of childhood.

This book addresses the inter-linked lives and fortunes of children and women in the first two decades of the twentieth century in England. This was a time of shifts in thinking and practice about children’s and women’s status, lived lives and experiences. The book provides a detailed explanation of how children experienced home, neighbourhood and elementary school; as well as discussing the impact of the women’s movement, namely its suffrage and socialist work. These two concerns are linked by the work women did about and for children. Essentially, the book explores childhood and womanhood; generation and gender; and socialism and feminism. Using existing studies on women’s work, and autobiographies and interviews about childhood, Mayall argues that women played a large part in re-thinking childhood as a special period in life, and children as participants in learning and in politics. This book will appeal to students and researchers in the fields of history, education and sociology, particularly those interested in the women’s movement, and the history of childhood.
