In Britain the phrase `child labour' is associated with the past, with children going up chimneys and down mines. However, in reality British children continue to perform arduous jobs, and British multinationals exploit child workers across the globe. This book explores the theoretical context of child labour research before considering the history of child labour and concluding with the present situation in the UK and USA.

Review:

The collection draws attention to the still very important contribution of children to the economy of Britain... it should be welcomed for presenting a wide range of sometimes provocative arguments in a discussion about an important subject. * Contemporary British History *
