Uddhav Thackeray has the last laugh

Perspectives on childhood and children


The book combines educational and social science with religious studies, literary studies and archaeological approaches to children and childhood.
The focus of consideration of the individual sciences is both the individual child and "childhood" as a concept of difference to "adulthood".
The individual contributions provide an indication of the knowledge about children in the individual sciences as well as about the epistemological conception of childhood.
