2. Résumé «Children and youth occupy important social and political roles, even as they sleep in their cribs or hang out on street corners. Conceptualized alternatively as harbingers or saboteurs of a bright, secure tomorrow, young people in various historical contexts have been central to adult-driven schemes to effect a positive future for children, families, communities, and nations.» (p. 1) «But have all children benefited from these programs and initiatives? Lost Kids examines adults’ misgivings about, and the inadequate care of vulnerable children. From explorations of interracial adoption and the treatment of children with disabilities to discussions of the cultural construction of the hopeless child, this multifaceted collection rejects the essentialism of the ‘priceless child’ or ‘lost youth’ – simplistic categories that continue to shape the treatment of those who deviate from the so-called norm.» (quatrième de couverture)
