Product description

Children in Latin American History & Society

Paperback, University of Wisconsin Press
304 Pages ,List Price £16.15

Taking a fresh look at Latin American and Caribbean society over the course of more than half a millennium, this volume explores how the omission of children from the region's historiography may in fact be no small matter. Children make up one-third of the population of Latin America and the Caribbean, and over the centuries they have worked, played, worshipped, committed crimes, fought and suffered in wars. Regarded as more promising converts to the Christian faith than adults, children were vital in European efforts to invent loyal subjects during the colonial era. In the contemporary economics of Latin America and the Caribbean - where 23 per cent of people live on a dollar per day or less - the labour of children may spell the difference between survival and starvation for millions of households.

Very good condition.
