Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'All essays are invaluable and provide a rich and informative source not only for those working on childhood and in the field of health and welfare, but also for those interested in wider questions about the nature of society and its cultural, political, and social relationships.'Social History of Medicine

'In short, the best essays in this collection offer a model of scholarship that grounds the insights of cultrual studies in attention to specific group, institutional, and professional dynamics. And in doing so, they make a needed and provocative contribution to the histories both of medicine and of child welfare.'Bulletin of the History of Medicine

' [An] oustandingly rich and serious collection of essays.'Sociology of Health and Illness
