Childhood can only be understood in relation to the multitude of social factors which surround it. This accessible text explores children's place within society through an examination of the different contexts within which a child exists. It begins by looking at the child within the family and goes on to examine the child within the educational setting, the community, the nation and other contexts. This Second Edition includes a new chapter 'The context of partnership: children in transition' and considers the impact of recent changes including initiatives such as the Tickell Review, Field Report and Allen Report.
