"[Harrington] superbly realizes her primary objective, which is to make both a theoretical and a practical argument for a reordering of political priorities."

"While others have written about the needs of families in caring for their members (e.g., child care, work-familiy issues, etc.) and have proposed policy solutions, Harrington provides a much larger context not generally found in other sources. This is a highly readable volume with sorely needed attention to the "care=equality problem" and to the inadequate piecemeal approach currently in use. Social workers concerned with supporting families by improving the care system via strong family policy will find this a thought-provoking book." -- Mary Elizabeth Collins, Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal, June 2001
