About this book

Using detailed case studies from urban and rural, poor and middle-class communities in both the developed and developing worlds, this book makes an excellent guide to both the theory and practice of children's participation. Published in association with UNICEF.

Books like Hart's are welcome resources, both for would-be participatory action researchers, and for more traditional academic inquirers. -- Taylor & Francis
