"Excellent, got me to university and through it … It was an easy read, explained the concepts in very simple terms and illustrated debate with clarity, whilst remaining a readable reference book … it was so good that I loaned my copy out and it was never returned…"

"This book has been of great help to me during my first year at Greenwich University where I am studying a B.A. in Childhood Studies, especially the chapters on the family and education. I will be buying the new edition of this soon. It is definitely worth the money."
