The Children Act 1989 introduces the most radical changes in child care law for a generation and will have significant effects on all professionals practising in this area. Concentrating on fieldwork aspects of the new law - the definition of court proceedings - The Reform of Child Care Law places the new act in its historical and political context and forms a concise, practical guide to the legislation.
