It deals with child poverty and health through history, and changing adult perceptions of childhood and adolescence. It is a readable social history of the hcild which also fills a gap in Australian historiography.

'It may be that the land and the people are young-hearted together, and the children's spirits not crushed and saddened by the shadow of long years' sorrowful history. There is a lurking sparkle of joyousness and rebellion and mischief in nature here, and therefore in children.' 'History, yes, we learnt History, all about Captain Cook. Who the hell wanted to learn about James Cook? He was just another white man. I thought, "If this James Cook's like the Manager, I don't want to know 'im anyway!" That Manager seems to shout at us most of the time, and if you done anything wrong you got whipped across the bum with a heavy piece of rope.' In Australian Childhood Jan Kociumbas explores the experience of growing up in Australia since white settlement. She acknowledges the resilience and adaptability of the young and re-evaluates their contribution to our past. The first comprehensive history of childhood in Australia, Australian Childhood is engaging reading for students, teachers and anyone interested in Australian history. Jan Kociumbas lectures in History at the University of Sydney. She is the author of Oxford History Of Australia, Vol. 2 Possessions (1770-1860).
