"With yet more revelations every day of what went on in various of these terrible establishments during the 20th century, Peter Higginbotham's timely book sometimes makes for uncomfortable reading, but it remains a vital addition to the social history of Britain, warts and all." (Books Monthly)
That this book is well-researched is very evident..., it is possible that this volume may become a major research-tool for those interested in British social history, orphanages, child welfare and the evolution of child foster care within Great Britain. (NZ Crown Mines)
