Emic Perspectives on Risk in African Childhood.
Liddell, Christine
Developmental Review, v22 n1 p97-116 Mar 2002
Examines issues related to risk and culture, with particular emphasis on how risk impinges on children growing up in Africa. Treats risk as cultural-specific and discusses risk in the context of an ecological model. Demonstrates that the systems and the model's recurrent theme of continuity/discontinuity provide a useful structure for understanding risk in African children's development. (Author)
