It covers diverse issues in the lives of girls, from sexuality and leisure to social roles in the family and the economy. A corrective to historiansa€™ traditionally male orientation toward youth, the volume brings girls to the center of European history, emphasizing their importance in European economics and culture. It also identifies cultural and temporal differences within the European experience, particularly with regard to the spaces girls occupied. While the contributors appreciate the importance of systemic and institutional factors in shaping young girlsa€™ lives, they are also sensitive to the ways in which girls have been able to resist dominance and create their own destinies.
