Authoritative: Strong reputation of OU for developing comprehensive and intellectually exciting anthologies of essential and thoughtprovoking readings. This reader will stimulate practitioners to innovate and challenge mainstream thinking within children's services
Innovative: Few other publications use this reader's social pedagogic approach, widely recognised in Europe and treated with increasing seriousness by UK policy makers, to help analyse and develop practice in children's services
Timely: The value base of trust, reciprocity and mutual respect reflected in this text is one that will chime well with lecturers, tutors, practitioners and service providers
Comprehensive: Seeks to take the concept of 'spaces' considerably further than any other publication, providing a new angle for students and practitioners to question and rethink the ways in which they form and maintain relationships and practices with children and young people
