Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth

"While following a traditional historical approach, this book provides 'a grand narrative' on public health and children’s health and care, putting at its center a consideration mainly (if not exclusively) of state institutions and the agency of relevant personalities involved in institutional policies. At the same time, with respect to the Greek case, this book can serve as a basis for elaborating advanced conceptual questions that are raised in multidisciplinary childhood studies such as how childhood and the subject 'child' are constituted by the diffusion of medical power and medical and body technologies."
