Editors Note How do we provide adequate child care for our kids? How do we close the gap between children in desperate need of quality care and healthcare providers with scarce financial and material resources to provide for them?This collection has assembled a team of the top names in the field to provide a wide-ranging and thought-provoking analysis on the state of child care today. Contributors consider the intersecting inequalities of race, ethnicity, gender, social class and sexual orientation and the ways in which each shapes the provision of care and young people. All essays are original and address a range of topics including issues of power and inequality in carework, family and neighborhood resources, workplace demands and opportunities for parents, and carework and the welfare state. As one of the most pressing problems facing families today, this collection challenges scholars, policymakers and concerned community members to rethink the issues, revitalize the debate and reconsider how to establish a|healthcare system that better serves its most important clients.
