Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Concerns about declining fertility rates are matched only by fears that childhood is being destroyed by modern parenting practices. This multidisciplinary volume offers a more balanced, less alarmist perspective on the meanings and implications of these issues. Contrary to predictions about the end of children and the end of childhood, these investigations of developments in Canada and the United States, and elsewhere in the world, show that fertility rates and ideas about children and childhood are not uniform but rather vary around the globe based on factors such as time, culture, class, income, and age.

Synopsis : Fertility rates have fallen dramatically around the world. In somecountries, there are no longer enough children being born to replaceadult populations. The disappearance of children is a matter of concernmatched only by fears that childhood is becoming too structured or notstructured enough, too short or too long, or just simply too differentfrom the idealized childhoods of the past. The End of Children? brings together scholars who draw ontheir expertise in multiple disciplines - sociology, demography, history, anthropology, family studies, social work, andeducation - to provide a more balanced, less alarmistperspective on the meanings and implications of these issues. Contraryto predictions of the end of children and the end of childhood, theirinvestigations of developments in Canada and the United States, and toa lesser extent elsewhere in the world, show that fertility rates andideas about children and childhood are not uniform but rather varyaround the globe based on factors such as time, culture, class, income, and age. These timely explorations of how changing ideas about the child arereshaping when and why people have children and how they choose toraise them opens a new dialogue on the production and place of childrenin modern society. Nathanael Lauster is an assistant professor ofsociology at the University of British Columbia. GrahamAllan is professor emeritus of sociology at Keele Universityin the United Kingdom. Contributors: Graham Allan, Anita Ilta Garey, MonaGleason, Edward Kruk, Nathanael Lauster, Megan Lemmon, Todd F. Martin, Adena B.K. Miller, Jay Teachman, Nicholas W. Townsend, Rebecca L.Upton, James M. White, Mira Whyman, and Jing Zhao.
