The goal of this new edition is to provide a coherent account, form a sociological standpoint, of how children are socialised into modern society. We are interested in how the child as an active person incorporates a constantly changing society into his very being. Extensive changes have been made in this edition. In discussing the processes of socialisation, we have elaborated our analysis of the concepts of self, identity, and self-esteem and have given more consideration to the place of sentiments in development. We have introduced more material on the biological foundations and historical context of socialisation. Throughout the volume, data have been updated. In discussing agencies of socialisation, we have included new materials on day care, schooling for minority children, and peer influences.
