Corsaro (sociology, Indiana U.) offers an interpretive perspective on the sociology of childhood, which is contrasted with more traditional socialization or outcome perspectives. He places the new sociology of childhood in historical and cultural context, then discusses the importance of children's peer cultures for a new sociology of childhood. New to this third edition is expanded discussion of children's introduction to symbolic and material aspects of peer culture and the impact of new technologies such as cell phones and social networking sites on peer culture. A final section looks at social problems of children, such as poverty and violence around the world. B&w photos and an extensive glossary are included. This third edition contains new case studies of children's dramatic play and new data on children's quality of life around the world. Pine Forge Press is an imprint of SAGE Publications.
