Rapid growth of interest in the research of childhood during
the last several decades can be regarded not only as an
indicator but also as an important factor in the long-term
processes of changes, which have radically transformed
history as a scientific discipline. With the growth of the
history of childhood as a discipline a series of problems
neglected until then has been opened, and along the
questions about the new sources and equivalent methods of
research. This is especially true for historiography in the
South East European countries, where social history and
historical anthropology is still marginal.

The volume comprises 18 contributions to the topic with
authors from all countries of the region, focussing on the
19th and 20th century. Topics like „upbringing of female
children in Serbia“ or „rural childhoods in mountain
regions of Austria and Greece“ are as well touched as
„children and war“ and „children and migration“.

This is the first volume that provides an international
readership with an overall picture on childhood in South
Eastern Europe.
