Learning from Child Deaths and Serious Abuse is to be recommended to anyone with an interest in understanding some of the factors contributing to children being seriously abused and neglected. In particular practitioners and policy-makers will find the style of the book informative and engaging the author has adopted a logical structure to the text, and her style of writing is uncomplicated whilst retaining a sense of the complexity of the issues being explored. Across the United Kingdom there has been a concerted effort to learn from the deaths of children as a result of maltreatment through a robust process of review, leading more to learning than to blame. This book is a timely and useful contribution to this growing body of work. --Health and Social care in the Community
Sharon Vincent has tackled an almost impossible problem head on, and come out the other side with something worthwhile, readable and robust. While there has been much study and analysis on this subject elsewhere in the UK, this book provides a ﬁrst attempt to collate information from inquiries into serious and fatal maltreatment in Scotland, giving a much-needed insight into trends and approaches to legislation and policy on child neglect and abuse. --Child Abuse Review
