Review:

This book brings together analyses of the UK's most recent birth cohort by leading experts. The result is a unique and multidisciplinary portrait of how young children are faring at the start of 21st century. Jane Waldfogel, Professor of Social Work & Public Affairs, Columbia University School of Social Work, New York

By following the development of a cohort of 5-year olds, this book offers new insights into social, economic and family life in Britain; it is a 'must read' for everyone who wants to understand the processes shaping childhood today. Angela Dale, Manchester University

If you want to know how young children in the 21st Century are faring inthe U.K., the book by Hansen, Joshi, and Dex is a must-read! Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Child Development, Columbia University

Written by experts from a variety of disciplines, the book takes an extended look at the children's lives and development as they begin formal statutory education, as well as service planning in early years, health and social services... Throughout, the book acknowledges that many initiatives designed to support children and families are, at best, in their own infancies; it is still too early to gauge their impact on the millennium children. Children & Young People Now

This is a 'must read' book for those interested in the MCS, child well-being, ethnic diversity and modern family life. Christine Skinner in Journal of Social Policy

Book Description Policy Press, 2010. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Neuware, auf Lager, Sofortversand - This is the second volume of a series of books which presents the only analysis of data from the UK's hugely important Millennium Cohort Study, which follows the progress of 19,000 children born at the start of the 21st century, along with their families. Volume 2 provides invaluable insights into early childhood in the UK today, covering the children's progress from ages 3 to 5 years. It is a unique and authoritative analysis of family life and early childhood in that it cuts across old boundaries. The fascinating range of findings presented is strengthened by a comparison with earlier generations. The series assesses the impact of a wide range of policies on the life courses of a new generation, including UK policies on child health, parenting, childcare, and social exclusion. 298 pp. Bookseller Inventory # INF1000290084
