Summary

For many children and their families, life is hard, grim and short: the global statistics on children are truly appalling. While problems of childhood poverty are most widespread in developing countries, formidable inequalities exist in more prosperous countries. This book addresses the question of unequal childhoods, both between and within countries, and the ways in which they are recognised, defined, catalogued and understood.
