Traditional models of childhood need reconstructing, especially as
children become more active in negotiating the boundaries between
themselves and adults. Wyness argues for new, more effective
conceptions of childhood, derived from analysis of recent social
policy. He interprets legislation and reveals that recent children
acts and educational reform exhibit a strengthening of the
socializing power of adults over children. Most importantly, this
book challenges a prevalent underlying conception of children as
'lesser' or 'inferior' versions of adults, a flawed understanding
that sill influences policy.
