Summary:
When and for what reasons does parents' power have legitimacy? And how do we rationally justify such normative evaluations? These are the questions posed in this book. In doing so, a number of specific case studies are examined in detail and an argument is made for a pluralist approach both to the conceptualisation of power and to its normative evaluation.
