Bringing together professionals from sociology, economics, psychology, and family studies, this volume presents papers from a symposium on child care that sought answers to each of the four questions listed in the table of contents. A lead speaker provided an answer, and discussants had a chance to critique the main presentation and set forth their own views. Each session also included a policy person to deal with issues from an applied perspective. The lead papers, review papers, and rejoinders constitute the contents of this volume. Interdisciplinary in scope, it deals with the central issue in a systematic way and attempts to present divergent points of view on each question. As such, it provides the reader with current information and a review of issues intended to provoke new ways of thinking about child care.

"...presents a wealth of fascinating data....It should be required reading for professionals, policymakers, and students in the field."
-Science Books and Films

" excellent resource for researchers, policymakers, and graduate students from a variety of disciplines."
-Journal of Marriage and the Family

"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."
-Contemporary Psychology

"...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."
-Merrill-Palmer Quarterly
