Synopsis

This new text by a recognized authority offers a clear, invigorating and theoretically sophisticated commentary on child abuse and child welfare policy. Parton critically assesses the latest developments in child protection thinking and practice, explaining how changes in philosophy and intervention have been informed by cultural, economic and political context. Carefully blending core examples, evidence and the latest social theory, this book is essential reading for both students and practitioners.
