520    The idea of children's agency is central to the growing 
       field of childhood studies. In this book David Oswell 
       argues for new understandings of children's agency. He 
       traces the transformation of children and childhood across
       the nineteenth, twentieth and early twenty-first centuries
       and explores the dramatic changes in recent years to 
       children's everyday lives as a consequence of new 
       networked, mobile technologies and new forms of 
       globalisation. The author reviews existing theories of 
       children's agency as well as providing the theoretical 
       tools for thinking of children's agency as spatially, 
       temporally and materially complex. with this in mind, he 
       surveys the main issues in childhood studies, with 
       chapters covering family, schooling, crime, health, 
       consumer culture, work and human rights. This is a 
       comprehensive text intended for students and academic 
       researchers across the humanities and social sciences 
       interested in the study of children and childhood.
