Eleanor Roosevelt once described Edith King as a “worldminded woman”. In LOOKING INTO THE LIVES OF CHILDREN: A WORLDWIDE VIEW, Edith King maintains this tradition which has guided her observation, research, writing and university teaching. Taking as her central theme the wide-ranging diversity and cultural pluralism which she sees as one of the key features of postmodern nations, she looks at the ways in which education should be delivered to young children ages four to ten years in the complex and diverse contemporary society in which they grow up. Her ultimate goal is that her writing will help teachers around the world to develop teaching strategies that acknowledge our human diversity within an overall context of equality and peacefulness.

Global Childhoods in International Perspective gathers a wide spectrum of contributors from Europe, the U.S., South Asia, South Africa and Latin America, who, attuned with present dilemmas in the area of childhood studies, discuss some key theoretical and empirical aspects of child scholarship, such as identity, child wellbeing, child mobility and migration, intergenerational relationships and child abuse. Through these expert contributions, the book explores the many ways in which the relationship between universality and particularities of childhood plays an important role in describing global childhoods. The book highlights childhood as a cross-cutting issue in global sociology with chapters on globalization and schooling in Burkina Faso, child abuse and neglect in India, identity and integration among children of African immigrants in France, social class mobility of Filipino migrant children in Italy and France, and an investigation into Kyrgyz childhoods. Ideal reading for researchers, practitioners and students interested in both childhood studies and the other areas including community research, sociology of education, social stratification, and the sociology of migration.
