Child's Play by Kate Darian-Smith
Book DescriptionDorothy Howard first documented the play of Australian children in the mid 1950s. Her remarkable finds are detailed here. Humorous and perceptive, she provides a radical perspective on the interaction between a society's economic structure, social mores and ideology. She explores children's traditionalism, inventiveness, their mimicry and subversive mockery. Accompanied by essays from well-known Australians June Factor, Kate Darian Smith and Brian Sutton-Smith.

During WWII, the people of Melbourne experienced years of social dislocation and increased government interference in all aspects of daily life. As women left their homes to replace men in factories and offices, the traditional roles of women were challenged, and the presence of US soldiers raised questions about Australian identity.
