Hearing the Voices of Children provides a fresh perspective on social policy. At the heart of the book is the emergence of 'children's voices' and the implications of this for social policy. The authors argue that children's voices should be heard much more strongly in the process of policy formation at all levels. Although there is growing support for this idea, it is not without opposition, and the authors themselves make many critical points about the current attempts to put it into practice. The book is divided into four main themes: hearing children's voices; discourses of childhood; children and services; and resources for children. Childhood experts from the UK, Scandinavia, Germany and Australia, examine how assumptions and models about childhood and discuss ways in which children's voices might become more influential in shaping policy. There are many obstacles to overcome, but the contributors to this volume show that children's participation is possible, and needed, if services are to be improved. This book is essential reading for students and academics in the field of childhood studies, sociology, social policy and education. It will also be of interest to practitioners in the social, child and youth services.

When it comes to resolving complaints, children and youth, particularly those living outside the parental home, have unique needs. Like clients of any organization, young people receiving services from the government need to have a say in decisions that affect them. They need to be able to express concerns about the services they receive or believe they should be receiving and know their concerns will be carefully considered and responded to in a timely and appropriate manner. They need to know they have the right to complain, that it's okay to complain and there are processes in place for them to do so.

When over 900 followers of the People's Temple religious movement committed suicide in 1978, they left a legacy of suspicion and fear. Most accounts of this mass suicide describe the members as brainwashed dupes and overlook the Christian and socialist ideals that originally inspired People's Temple members. Hearing the Voices of Jonestown restores the individual voices that have been erased, so that we can better understand what was created - and destroyed - at Jonestown, and why.
