Description

Through an interdisciplinary synthesis combining social theory, social policy and the empirical findings of social science research, this title bridges the gap between theory and practice, offering an incisive theoretical account of childhood that is grounded in substantive areas of children's lives such as health, education, crime and the family. This furthers understanding of the impact of policy on children's everyday lives and social experiences.
