Global Childhoods: Globalization, Development and Young People
This volume is edited by Stuart Aitken and includes a contribution by Fernando Bosco. This collection highlights one important frame for understanding the importance of children's geographies: the social construction of children and the spatial dynamics of local childhoods are related to global and political economic trends and conceptualizations of development.
