Symposium Review of Books. The Welfare of Children.
Rossi, Peter H.; Sarri, Rosemary
Children and Youth Services Review, v17 n1-2 p347-54 1995
Compares and contrasts the issues presented in two books pertaining to child poverty, policy, and welfare reform: "The Welfare of Children" (Duncan Lindsey) and "Rethinking Child Welfare in Canada" (Brian Wharf, Editor). Both provide excellent analysis and recommendations but lack attention to tracking systems that place children in different systems even when their underlying problems are similar. (AA)
