Through this controversial analysis, Kerry H. Robinson critically engages with the relationships between childhood, sexuality, innocence, moral panic, censorship and notions of citizenship. This book highlights how the strict regulation of childrens knowledge, often in the name of protection or in the childs best interest, can ironically, increase childrens prejudice around difference, increase their vulnerability to exploitation and abuse, and undermine their abilities to become competent adolescents and adults.

Within her work Robinson draws upon empirical research to:provide an overview of the regulation and governance of childrens access to difficult knowledge, particularly knowledge of sexualityexplore and develop Foucaults work on the relationship between childhood and sexualityidentify the impact of these discourses on adults understanding of childhood, and the tension that exists between their own perceptions of sexual knowledge, and the perceptions of childrenreconceptualise childrens education around sexuality.Innocence, Knowledge and the Construction of Childhood is essential reading for both undergraduate and postgraduate students undertaking courses in education, particularly with a focus on early childhood or primary teaching, as well as in other disciplines such as sociology, gender and sexuality studies, and cultural studies.
