Description

This book argues that Britain is gripped by an endemic and ongoing panic about the position of children in society - which frames them as, alternately, victims and threats. It argues the press is a key player in promoting this discourse, which is rooted in a wide-scale breakdown in social trust.


"A great read and an important contribution to our understanding of how anxiety towards young people mutates into the narrative of panic." Frank Furedi, University of Kent, UK
