£27.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

This book provides an essential one-stop introduction to the key concepts, issues, policies and practices affecting child welfare, with particular emphasis on the changing nature of the relationship between child welfare and social policy. No other book brings together such a wide selection of material to form an attractive and indispensable teaching and learning resource.

Child welfare and social policy provides readers with an historical overview of child welfare in England and Wales; high quality contributions from leading authorities in the field; discursive introductions to each section that set individual chapters in the broader context of childhood studies and case study material to bring discussions to life.

Key topics covered include morality and child welfare; relations between law, medicine, social work, social theory and child welfare; children's rights and democratic citizenship and children as raw material for 'social investment'.

Child welfare and social policy is invaluable reading for students and academics in social policy, sociology, education and social work. It is also a useful resource for health and social work professionals wishing to follow current debates in theory and practice.

Harry Hendrick is Associate Professor of History at the University of Southern Denmark. He has written widely on the welfare of children and adolescents in the 19th and 20th centuries and is currently completing a book on age relations between children and adults in England from the 18th century to the present day. He is author of Child welfare: Historical dimensions, contemporary debate (The Policy Press, 2003).
