Abstract: Almost 10 years after Childhood and Society (Palgrave, 2nd edn, 2011), Michael Wyness, an associate professor of childhood studies at the University of Warwick, now brings to print a short yet broad introduction to the study of childhood. In particular, this book discusses multiple views about childhood, a concept that for the past two decades has been contested within social sciences’ critical theorizing. On the back cover of the book, William A Corsaro and Alan Prout, well-known scholars from the field, are unanimous in recognizing the value of this new contribution in childhood studies. The interested and attentive reader should not be indifferent to their words and judgment; Wyness’s Childhood is a ‘gem,’ according to Corsaro.
