At a time when violence both towards and by children is on the increase, Rosalind Miles investigates the worldwide crisis of parenthood. This book tells the story of childhood, through time and across many cultures, from the birth of the child to the death of innocence that we call maturity. By asking what we can do to help children become the kind of people society wants, needs and can value, the book tries to reassert the status of the professional parent. Rosalind Miles is the author of "The Women's History of the World", "Women and Power" and "The Rites of Man".
