We would like to thank each of the contributors for the help, advice and patience that they offered during the writing and editorial process in the course of preparing this book. At Sage Karen Phillips has been very supportive of the project as has the production team, including in particular Louise Wise and Lauren McAllister. The comments that we received from the appointed external referees were helpful and thought-provoking and we have tried to take account of their advice, guidance and concerns, although only they can judge the extent to which we have succeeded in this respect. Finally, many of the ideas that inform this book have been ‘tried and tested’ on our students in various childhood studies courses that we run at our universities. Their contributions, insight, feedback and queries have helped to clarify our ideas and they have hopefully served to assist our students of the future by making this a better book.BarryGoldson, MichaelLavalette and JimMcKechnie January 2002
