Childhood: Services and Provision for Children provides an important and timely contribution to the field of Childhood and Youth Studies. This cutting-edge text brings together, within a critical framework, an understanding and discussion of a broad range of services, ideas and themes, and debates the impact of them on children's lives.

The text takes a truly multi-disciplinary perspective, reflecting the wide-ranging experience and backgrounds of the authors and contributors. The wealth of real case study material and reflective activities within each chapter helps develop the evaluative tools and critical skills essential for an understanding of the complex social, political and environmental issues surrounding childhood today and thus makes this an essential text for those studying in this field.
