Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive history and analysis of the politics that have shaped U.S. federal child care policy throughout the past 30 years. The most thorough account ever written about the long, slow, disoriented process of child care policy in America. Her history shows how far we have not come because the needs of policy makers, institutions, and other interests have overridden the needs of children. All who are interested in improving the quality of child care will benefit from this painstaking research presented in this must-read book.
