Order and Disorder: The Contradictions of Childhood.
Smith, Roger
Children & Society, v14 n1 p3-10 Feb 2000
Critically reviews the question of childhood in the context of simultaneous globalization and atomization of social life. Discusses childhood in relation to children as consumers, children as interpreters, and children as actors. Suggests that these ideas help explain some of the tensions and disruptions that characterize the lives of some children, especially those at the margins. (Author/KB)
