Scarcity and Surplus: Shifting Regimes of Childhood in Nicaragua
Tully, Sheila R.
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v14 n3 p355-374 2007
This article explores the multiple meanings of children and childhood in Nicaragua during periods of dramatic sociopolitical and economic transitions. The article compares the state's responsibilities to Nicaraguan children and their families during the decade of revolution and first year of the post-revolutionary period. It argues that each state supported a particular construction of childhood that produced a certain ideal of the Nicaraguan child. (Contains 10 notes.)
