How have children been perceived by policy-makers since 1945 ?
Has the welfare state ensured unprecedented well-being for today's children ?
Drawing upon the diverse range of evidence across the major social services, this book provides a critical and up-to-date account of how children have fared in the post-war welfare state.
Each chapter examines how children have been affected by the achievements and failures of state provision in key policy areas - housing, health, education, social security, child care and protection.
In particular there is a detailed analysis of the policy changes promoted by the New right and introduced by Conservative governments since 1979.
The authors conclude by proposing a number of reforms for making policy more child-centered - to give reality to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
