This follow-on on volume of ""Focus on Child Abuse"", published in 1989, is another collection of papers by major figures. The issue remains just as contentious, the number of troubling cases is, if anything, larger. Since 1989 there have been seen several major inquiries, including Orkney, Pindown in Staffordshire and Leicestershire. Lord Clyde's Orkney report (1992) could be called Cleveland revisited - poor judgement, worse treatment, few lessons learned.;This collection of 15 papers is an important contribution to a vital and high-profile debate. Contributors include: Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, judge in the Court of Appeal; Professor M.D.A. Freeman, Professor of English Law, University College, London; Professor Roy Meadow, Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health, St James's University Hospital, Leeds.
