Editorial Reviews

Mark Waldo
It was with great admiration I read this analysis of the current child welfare scene. This succinct, factual and above all useful book on a controversial and politicized subject combines a detailed and accurate analysis with a sprightly and invigorating use of clear and appropriate metaphors. I heartily recommend its careful reading not only by the specialists, but by all those concerned with how the problem of "victimhood" arouses negative responses and undercuts competent and caring services.
Richard Wexler
In a field where so many are intent on generating heat, Kent Miller has chosen to shed light. Not satisfied with scholarly treatises and second-hand accounts, Prof. Miller spent part of his retirement working in child welfare offices to see the problems for himself. The result is a book that combines the rigor of a scholar with the firsthand insights of a good journalist. Prof. Miller offers a useful guide for anyone looking for ways to fix a broken system.
