The respect for the human persons and their social improvement is a basic value and guideline for the journal. A comparative view of all issues concerning childhood is welcome by this journal, as we are convinced that this world is living a period of complexity and uncertainty, when it is necessary to have a wider and wiser view of the problems concerning childhood, without attempting to reduce their scale. Children are the hope for the future, they are the future of humanity. So, the study of childhood and the improvement of its social, psychological and economic conditions also means to help building a better society and a better world.

Bringing together two topics of wide and growing sociological interest, The Body, Childhood and Society examines how children's bodies are constructed in schools, families, courts, hospitals and in film. Recognising that children's bodies are a target for adult practices of social regulation, the contributors show that children are also active in their construction, employ them in resistance and social action, and generate their own meanings about them. The editor, a leading sociologist of childhood, draws out the theoretical implications of this work, indicates the limits of social constructionism, and suggests new ways of thinking about the hybrid of material, discursive and collective processes involved. It will be a valuable text for social scientists interested in the body, childhood, schooling, the law, medicine and health.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Wissenschaft, Theorie, Anthropologie, Note: Sehr gut, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Institut für Bildungswissenschaft), Veranstaltung: "Klassiker der Pädagogik", Vertiefung Erziehungswissenschaften, Dr. Mikl, SS2006, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Bevor man sich mit dem Werk von Erik H. Erikson auseinander setzen möchte, erfordert es, seine Biographie zu studieren, da seine Arbeit eng mit seinem Lebensweg verbunden ist. Die „Entwicklung einer Identität“ war nicht nur in seinem beruflichen Schaffen die zentrale Fragestellung, sondern verfolgte ihn sein gesamtes Leben auch im persönlichen Sinn. Es scheint so, als ob er selbst sein ganzes Leben auf der Suche nach (seiner) Identität war. Erik H. Erikson gilt als ein „freudianischer Ich-Psychologe“, d.h. er orientiert sich einerseits an den Theorien von Dr. Sigmund Freud, andererseits auch an den Konzepten anderer Psychoanalytiker, wie Anna Freud. Außerdem galt sein Interesse möglichen gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Einflüssen bei der Identitätsentwicklung. [vgl. BOEREE, C.

* What happens to childhood when the nature of adulthood becomes uncertain? * What impact is globalization having on adult-child relationships? * How are we to study 'growing up' today? Traditionally, children and adults have been treated as different kinds of person, with adults seen as complete, stable and self-controlling, and children seen as incomplete, changeable and in need of control. This ground-breaking book argues that in the early twenty-first century, 'growing up' can no longer be understood as a movement toward personal completion and stability. Careers, intimate relationships, even identities, are increasingly provisional, bringing into question the division between the mature and the immature and thereby differences between adults and children. Childhood and Society charts the emergence of the conceptual and institutional divisions between adult 'human beings' and child 'human becomings' over the course of the modern era. It then examines the contemporary economic and ideological trends that are eroding the foundations of these divisions. The consequences of this age of uncertainty are examined through an assessment of sociological theories of childhood and through a survey of children's varied positions in a globalizing and highly mediated social world. In all, this accessible text provides a clear, up-to-date and original insight into the sociological study of childhood for undergraduates and researchers alike. It also develops a new set of conceptual tools for studying 'growing up'.
