Knowing Our Place: Children Talking about Power, Identity and Citizenship

In Knowing Our Place over 400 young Australians respond to ideas about belonging, identity and social and political power. The book explores the complex mindsets of young people in their search for identity within the broader society.

While the fundamental aim of the book is to identify and describe aspects of children's thinking as they grapple with their developing sense of being in the world, there are evident implications for the project of citizenship education.
