Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Like toddlers all over the world, Sri Lankan children go through a period that in the U.S. is referred to as the terrible twos. Yet once they reach elementary school age, they appear uncannily passive, compliant, and undemanding compared to their Western counterparts. Clearly, these children have undergone some process of socialization, but what? Over ten years ago, anthropologist Bambi Chapin travelled to a rural Sri Lankan village to begin answering this question, getting to know the toddlers in the village, then returning to track their development over the course of the following decade. Childhood in a Sri Lankan Village offers an intimate look at how these children, raised on the tenets of Buddhism, are trained to set aside selfish desires for the good of their families and the community. Chapin reveals how this cultural conditioning is carried out through small everyday practices, including eating and sleeping arrangements, yet she also explores how the village s attitudes and customs continue to evolve with each new generation. Combining penetrating psychological insights with a rigorous observation of larger social structures, Chapin enables us to see the world through the eyes of Sri Lankan children searching for a place within their families and communities. Childhood in a Sri Lankan Village offers a fresh, global perspective on child development and the transmission of culture. N° de réf. du libraire

Critique: "Chapin's work is a significant contribution to the anthropology of childhood. It tackles important questions about the meaning of child care practices and patterns."--Jill E. Korbin"Department of Anthropology and Schubert Center for Child Studies, Case Western R" (07/25/2013)
