In the same tradition as the best-selling Making and Breaking Children's Lives (PCCS Books, 2005) this is an academically
thorough collection of socio-cultural and critical reviews of the place of children and children's services in society. Contributions
from well-respected practitioners and academics provide perspectives on constructing childhood, parent-hood, sexuality, ADHD,
children and austerity, the family court system, parental blame and responsibility, learning disabilities, and poverty. Contributors
include Peter Breggin, Rudi Dallos, Pat Dudgeon, Laura Golding, Dan Goodley and Katherine Runswick-Cole.
