'A good foundation for those intent on further research' - ChildRight 'It is intelligent, lively, clear, and well written' - Professor Hugh Cunningham, University of Kent at Canterbury 'This is an excellent source book which is up-to-date and covers key debates on childhood in an accessible way' - Professor Andy Furlong, University of Glasgow In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of 'children' and 'childhood' within the social sciences. Children, Welfare and the State provides readers with a comprehensive critical introduction to modern childhood studies. In addition to engaging with the broad theoretical debates within the 'new' sociology of childhood and developmental psychology the book: - Explores key questions in relation to researching childhood, children's agency and social constructionist perspectives; - Traces historical and contemporary developments in social policy responses to children and childhood; - Examines the primary sites of state intervention in regulating and shaping children's lives. - Re-states the primary significance of social class and other structural divisions in understanding children's experiences of childhood; - Systematically assesses the impact of inequality and poverty on children and childhood.
