Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The first extended study to be carried out on this subject.' The Guardian 'A detailed, longitudinal study.' New Statesman and Society 'Young Mothers makes a credible case against accepting common views on teen motherhood, prima facie. It is highly regardable ... provides interesting firsthand evidence on the experiences of young mothers, and helps place those experiences in class context.' American Journal Of Sociology 'This is a nuanced account of teenage motherhood that challenges established orthodoxies on the subject.' Studies on Women Abstracts 'This book should prove interesting reading to those working in community health care of researching the subject.' Nursery World 'In adding to this prolific literature, Ann Phoenix makes two valuable and related contributions. The first is the deconstruction of young mothering as problematic. The second is the presentation of findings from a rich and extensive set of accounts from young women, aged between 16-19 years, of their experiences of mothering. Ann Phoenix raises important questions for future research and social policy. The book is of central relevance and written so as to be accessible to a wide audience. It should be a key text for academic, welfare and health professionals.' Journal of Reproductive and Infant Psychology
