Reviewed Work(s): Governing the Family: Child Care, Child Protection and the State by Nigel PARTON
book review, family, child care
This book is a comprehensive study of recent changes in social policy surrounding the issue of child protection in England. The area of child protection is used to dramatize how certain aspects of the social world are labeled problems and become subject to legal control. This is essentially the case study of how one country has grappled with the competing demands of protecting children and respecting the privacy rights of parents. Central to the book is the important, if not paramount, role that social workers have in mediating between the often conflicting demands of protection and family privacy.
