Over the past decade, the post-war consensus on the welfare state has been undermined by economic crisis and the growing appeal of right wing social policies. Every sector of welfare services has been affected by privatization programmes and reduced expenditure. The books in this series tackle emerging trends in the provision of welfare services. This book is a collaborative work of a group of experienced social work practitioners and academics, and it explores the core issues and debates surrounding child abuse and child protection. The issues are debated within a framework of broad social themes - the changing form of the state and state power, and the impact and role of gender, race, ethnicity, class and age. Central to this task is the important contribution of feminism and critical social theory, and the demand for theory and practice that is sensitive to race and gender.
