Pressestimmen"The book's focus on the child figure provides a new angle for readers interested in issues of development, globalization, and exchange."--Alison Kafer, Women's Studies "Even though Castaneda's work builds more on literary and feminist scholarship than on historical evidence, historians of technology may find value in her idea of the child figure as a vacated construction zone for theories of humanity, subjectivity, and adulthood, as well as her elaboration of how this concept plays in constructions of difference."--Rachel Prentice, Technology and Culture "Claudia Castaneda has written a really wonderful book, which I recommend to all those interested not only in the cultural analysis of childhood but also in understanding how this might be related to postcolonial cultural theory more generally."--Valerie Walkerdine, Cultural Studies Review "[T]his is a book that should launch a number of other studies of the child. This is a truly interdisciplinary study..."--Roy Richard Grinker, Anthropological Quarterly "In a broadly ranging, theoretically edgy work, Claudia Castaneda illustrates just how consideration of the child can productively engage postcolonial, feminist, and cultural studies literatures. This book makes a welcome and important contribution by being a primarily theoretical consideration of that troublesome thing, the child."--Elizabeth Chin, American Anthropologist Listed in Cultural Critique, Women's Review of Books, TLS Book Alert email, CHE, Hypatia, Critical Inquiry, Feminist Academic Press column, and boundary 2.
