The Child in Society - Hazel R. Wright

Picture: 

The child has a very special place in society, and society defines and shapes childhood. Understanding childhood is essential to early years students and this book offers a great introduction.

Taking a thematic approach, chapters cover:

  • Historical and Cultural Perspectives
  • Policy and Economic Perspectives
  • Psychological and Biological Perspectives
  • Contemporary Views.

Each chapter prompts you to reflect on core issues and interrogate your practice and attitudes towards children in your care.

Picture: 

Contrairement à ce que l’on croit souvent, le marché ne fait pas que dissoudre des liens mais en crée de nouveaux. Partout, communautés de clients, sites de rencontre, régulations marchandes, cartes de fidélité, cadeaux d’entreprise, associations professionnelles, outils du marketing viral, réseaux sociaux électroniques, contrats commerciaux, inventent et font proliférer des formes de liens inédites à partir de la rencontre entre les partenaires de l’échange.
