Colin Ward’s classic look at urban childhood explores the ways in which the experience of a life in the city affects how we grow up.
Comments on the first edition:
“The Child in the City tears down walls and brilliantly highlights a culture which extends from Battersea to Bangladesh; the only true international culture, which in our search for ‘knowledge’ we largely ignore. Ward has produced a book which should go into every school, college and home, and also into every factory and office. ” Time Educational Supplement
“…the engaging text weaves many strands of thought together from teachers, sociologists, architects, social workers and many more professions to produce a book as interesting to teachers as it will be to parents” The Teacher
