9780028657141: Encyclopedia of Children and Childhood in History and Society

This encyclopedia examines what life was like for children throughout history in the United States and around the world. It presents the social and cultural history of childhood from antiquity to 2003. Each culture, each region, each historical period constructs its own definition of childhood. For example, before modern industrialization, childhood was brief; children were commonly considered miniature adults from an early age. With articles written by scholars from around the world this work presents a variety of historical, cultural and social perspectives. Detailed comparative entries describe childhood in specific historical periods and in geographic regions. The encyclopedia also places particular emphasis on images of childhood in art and literature, education, parenting, health, medicine and play.
