Harry Hendrick is an historian and his publications have concentrated on the history of childhood. However he has worked with a number of social scientists from different disciplines, which he has found productive, and he has strong views on the achievements of childhood studies and its weaknesses. He thinks that the value of historical study is still not recognised within childhood studies and neither is it valued in mainstream History. More generally he sees childhood studies as missing the boat in terms of political clout and in terms of influence within the academy. His current work focuses on parent-child relations from the 1940s until the current neo-liberal era.

Keywords:   history of childhood, History, childhood, childhood studies, recognition, neo-liberal, politics
