A Safe Place To Grow Up? Parenting, Perceptions of Children's Safety and the Rural Idyll.
Valentine, Gill
Journal of Rural Studies, v13 n2 p137-48 Apr 1997
Explores how an image of the countryside as an idealized place in which to grow up is constructed, mobilized, and contested by rural English parents in accounts of their children's lives. Interview excerpts focus on children's opportunities for freedom and carefree outdoor play in country villages, contrasting fears for children's safety, and conceptions of "community." Contains 68 references. (Author/SV)
