Summary
Over the last few decades, public opinion has been traumatised by revelations of child abuse on a mass scale. It has become the major human rights story of the 21st century in Western society. This book explores the relationship between the media, child abuse and shifting adult-child power relations which, in Western countries, has spawned an ever expanding range of laws, policies and procedures introduced to address the èxplosion' of interest in the issue of child abuse
