"What is unique about [this book] is its point/counterpoint format; in this one volume, the major viewpoints on the availability, quality, and economics of the provision of child-care services in the United States are presented. Each perspective is presented in depth with reference to substantive studies as well as policy interpretations. It is a remarkable example of how philosophical or policy stances alter reviews of the same research literature."
"...the volume makes a valuable contribution to the child-care field....The four-question format used by Booth provides more coordinated coverage than is typically the case with edited volumes, and the extensive use of discussion chapters highlights sharp differences of opinion within the field, thus making for lively reading....will serve as a solid resource for those who push ahead in this fast-moving field."
