This book brings together a collection of articles about performing focus groups with 7 to 11 year-old children. All of the contributions were written by members of a multidisciplinary project which took place in six study sites in Europe and investigated children's experiences with their asthma. The text can be used as a handbook for children's focus groups. It also presents an anthropological perspective to serve as a critical commentary on the processes which occur when focus groups are taken out of their native terrain and used in new social collectivities.
