Abstract

Children: Rights and Childhood is widely regarded as the rst book to offer a detailed philosophical examination of children's rights. David Archard provides a clear and accessible introduction to a topic that has assumed increasing relevance since the book's rst publication. Divided clearly into three parts, it covers key topics such as: John Locke's writings on children Philippe Ariès's Centuries of Childhood children's moral and legal rights a child's right to vote and to sexual choice parental rights to privacy and autonomy dening and understanding child abuse. The third edition has been fully revised and updated throughout with a new chapter providing an in-depth analysis of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and Part II has been restructured to move the reader from general theoretical considerations of children's rights through to practical issues. This volume is ideal reading for advanced studies across Philosophy, Social Work, Law, Childhood Studies, Politics, and Social Policy.
