'This is an exciting new review of the dynamic relationships between children, families and the state. It incorporates a substantial amount of new evidence about this critical subject for those concerned with the well-being of children and families. It also achieves the clever task of being both accessible and 'user-friendly' whilst at the same time being original, thought-provoking and insightful. This book should be a key resource for a wide range of students and many others with an interest in this fundamentally important subject matter.'Roger Smith, Professor of Social Work Research, De Montfort University, UK
'This book makes a timely and stimulating contribution to the sociology of childhood, set in an historical context and drawing on a range of significant research and theorising. Clearly written and containing useful ideas for reflective activities and further reading, Professor Frost's admirable book will be particularly relevant to students at an undergraduate level, including those on professional courses, who wish to develop their understanding of the complex and changing relationship between children, families and the State.' Helen Masson, Professor of Social Work (Children and Young People), University of Huddersfield, UK
'A clearly written and informative introductory text on a subject of enormous contemporary significance, namely those complex relationships that exist between the state welfare apparatus, parents and carers, and children and adolescents. This book will be of considerable benefit to those students (and their teachers), on a variety of courses, who are looking for a guide to the debates, dilemmas and challenges of the subject matter, an overview of some of the recent research, and the implications of such research and debate for children's lives. It is certainly a worthy addition to the New Childhood series.' Harry Hendrick, Associate Fellow, University of Warwick, UK
'A fascinating and erudite analysis of the meaning of childhood particularly at the context of families and the State. It brings together research, theory and political debate and provides a very clear and accessible exposition of complex concepts - and most importantly makes it clear why they matter. It will stimulate and challenge professionals who work with children in a wide range of settings, encouraging us to acknowledge, question and rethink how we frame childhood in our own work and our services.' Jane Lewis, Director, Research in Practice - Supporting evidence-informed practice with children and families, UK
Nick Frost is Professor of Social Work (Childhood, Children and Families) at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. Previously, he was Senior Lecturer in Child Welfare at the University of Leeds, UK, for 15 years, and has held posts as a social worker and a policy officer.

"Rethinking Children and Families" considers the way we approach the complex the relationship between childhood, families and the state, and explores the contested nature of the terms 'childhood', 'family' and 'state'. Theoretical and practice-based perspectives are discussed within the context of recent key developments. Examples of research, reflections on research and key points and guidance on further reading make this a really accessible text. "Rethinking Children and Families" is essential reading for those studying childhood and undergraduate and graduate level, and will be of great interest to those working with children in any field. Is childhood changing? What effects are new ideas about childhood having on children's lives? How are children's voices and opinions affecting the services they use? Contemporary debates on the nature of childhood, attitudes towards children, the experiences of children and the emergence of a child rights agenda are resulting in a re-examination of theory, practice and research in many fields."New Childhoods" offers a re-appraisal of the meaning of childhood - a series of texts that are succinct, accessible and engaging in introducing undergraduates to key areas of Childhood Studies, Education Studies and Sociology, and in disseminating new thinking, research, scholarship and practices. Books in this series will also be of interest to those who are preparing to work with children, such as teachers, early years practitioners, youth workers, health workers and psychologists. Key features include: boxed summaries of research which engage the reader in analysis; case studies to explore each issue in context; tasks to develop critical thinking; and pointers on further reading. Each volume promotes a child rights perspective, and provokes a re-examination of child-adult relationships in the contexts of family, community and state. Insights and experiences across fields such as sociology, philosophy and psychology are combined to encourage an inter-disciplinary approach. Seller Inventory # AAV9781847060808
