Miki has a wooden scooter with rubber wheels. Though the wheels are red and rather attractive, he is dreaming of a real bicycle. He is only eight years old and likes to play with his cut out paper soldiers, which his father generously supplies him from his bookstore. The soldiers are mainly Hungarian and German soldiers. There are complete military orchestras as well to be cut out. It is a lot of work for an eight-year-old. Then, finally the soldiers are starting to march on the carpet in the living room. Miki does not know yet that the real soldiers will very soon play an important role in his life. This innocence of not knowing how things really are is forgivable for a small child. But what happens if our Miki never really catches up with the brutal reality of his changing surroundings? Is this a desirable personality trait, or just plain stupidity? Whatever it is, this is the key to his survival of the years of Holocaust and Communist terror. He is not only a survivor, but he is a contented person always finding the interesting, the exciting parts of a given situation. The rest is in the book.

Like the occupants of the children's table at a family dinner, scholars working in childhood studies can seem sidelined from the "adult" labor of humanities scholarship. The Children's Table brings together scholars from architecture, philosophy, law, and literary and cultural criticism to provide an overview of the innovative work being done in childhood studies--a transcript of what is being said at the children's table. Together, these scholars argue for rethinking the academic seating arrangement in a way that acknowledges the centrality of childhood to the work of the humanities. The figure we now recognize as a child was created in tandem with forms of modernity that the Enlightenment generated and that the humanities are now working to rethink. Thus the growth of childhood studies allows for new approaches to some of the most important and provocative issues in humanities scholarship: the viability of the social contract, the definition of agency, the performance of identity, and the construction of gender, sexuality, and race. Because defining childhood is a means of defining and distributing power and obligation, studying childhood requires a radically altered approach to what constitutes knowledge about the human subject. The diverse essays in The Children's Table share a unifying premise: to include the child in any field of study realigns the shape of that field, changing the terms of inquiry and forcing a different set of questions. Taken as a whole, the essays argue that, at this key moment in the state of the humanities, rethinking the child is both necessary and revolutionary.
