Polakow, Valerie
Early Education and Development, v8 n3 p245-64 Jul 1997
Contrasts family and child-care discourse and policies in United States and Denmark, with focus on discourse about the poor, about women and welfare, about single motherhood, and about the role of government in providing for children. Critically analyzes dissolution of U.S. social "safety net" and contrasts it with Danish discourse of universalism and social citizenship rights. (EV)
