Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History demonstrates how to do a childhood history of emotions and suggests why combining these fields affords historians from both approaches a valuable and more complete picture. It conceptualises the tensions inherent to emotional formation, taking place on the 'emotional frontier', where the agency of children was subjected to competing emotional prescriptions, practices and performances. The chapters represent the best new scholarship on the intersection of childhood and emotions as they relate to sexuality, war and conflict, politics and policy, space and material culture, youth organizations and institutions, and relationships with families, authority figures and peer groups, from diverse contexts and periods in Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. A global picture emerges, showing that children, childhood, and the emotions associated with them are not universal; they are dependent on time, place, and dynamics of power.
