    schema:description "Child abuse policy in the United States contains dangerous contradictions. A rapidly expanding child abuse industry, consisting of enterprising psychotherapists and attorneys, consumes enormous resources. At the same time, thousands of poor children are seriously injured or killed, many while being "protected" by public agencies. The growing interest in child abuse as a middle class problem has led to the frenzied pursuit of offenders, resulting in the sacrifice of innocent children and adults. The Politics of Child Abuse in America presents a compelling analysis of these problems, revealing the historical patterns that gave rise to them and presenting practical policy recommendations. It will be an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and professionals in social work, as well as for anyone concerned about the welfare of children in the United States."@en ;
