Praise for the first edition: "The format is clear, the size compact, and the text comprehensive, making it an invaluable reference volume." Child Health Praise for the second edition: "Corby has carefully selected the most pressing issues which have arisen!and has assured that all receive a mention." Child Abuse Review "It is essential reading for practitioners and students in the child protection field." Child Right This bestselling book has been updated to take account of the rapid changes in child protection practices since the previous edition. In the United Kingdom, for instance, legal changes related to high profile cases such as the Victoria Climbie case which resulted in the Laming Report in 2003 followed by the Children's Act in 2004, have altered interagency and intra-agency procedures. The need to understand child abuse and neglect in its historical, social and political context remains key to this book but the book has been broadened to include issues such as: The exploitation and maltreatment of children world-wide (child trafficking, the impact of war on children, and child labour) The commercial sexual exploitation of children Treatment of child asylum seekers in Britain Abuse of children on the internet Controversy relating to child deaths (including Munchausen's syndrome by proxy) The book also contains updated research evidence from across the world that investigates child abuse and neglect as they relate to gender, race, ethnicity and poverty. Child Abuse provides key reading for social work students and practitioners who are working, or intend to work, in the field of child protection.
