Book Description:

Children, Families and Government analyses the relationship between child development research and the design and implementation of social policy concerning children and families. It captures the excitement and challenges emerging in the field of child development and social policy, and it examines recent changes in our national ethos towards children and families.This book is particularly timely, with issues like health care, welfare reform, and drug abuse addressed in a context that enables the reader to relate current events to the theories and foundations on which policies are based.

Review:

"Notable authors in the field provide a scholarly, comprehensive overview of the changing nature of child and family policy..." Young Children

"For those with an interest in social policies regarding children and families, this volume will provide both a broad overview, and a number of good specific illustrations, of both the art and the science of social policy-as presented and practiced by some of the most dedicated and effective advocates for children in our field today." Mark R. Lepper, Contemporary Psychology

"This volume provides an excellent resource for those who make and inform policy that affects the lives of children and families. It represents a well thought out and well executed effort to aid in the use of children development research in the design and implementation of social policies." Michele Goyette-Ewing , Child Development Abstracts & Bibliography
