The recent UNICEF report on child poverty found that some 47 million children in ’rich’ countries live in families so poor that their health and well-being are at risk. In Britain, 20% of young people live below the poverty line, compared with just 5% in Sweden, Norway and Finland. Child poverty and the well-being of children is an important policy issue throughout the industrialised world. This volume brings together economists, sociologists and social policy analysts from America, Australia, and Europe, who have been studying the extent of child poverty, its consequenc

This 32nd volume of the Minnesota Symposium on Child Psychology celebrates the 75th anniversary of the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development.

Taken together, the chapters in this book show how the history of science connects past and future, how it gives the individual investigator an identity and sense of purpose, how contemporary studies occur within larger traditions, and how institutions like the Institute of Child Development, constitute cultural traditions of their own.
