An overview of the key issues facing the Jamaican child of the nineties. Crawford-Brown confronts the problems of Jamaican children with a view to sensitizing professionals and the public to these problems. This work provides a basis for analysing some of these problems and seeks to examine their programmatic and policy implications, particularly in relation to the improvement of systems of social service delivery.
Who Will Save Our Children? is appropriate for professionals working with children, particularly teachers, social workers and guidance counsellors, but it is also geared towards parents, to help them understand their own situations and responses in terms of Jamaican society.
