Über diesen Titel


In the 1990s, the "Parent Question" has become a constant on the political agenda. New Labour is committed to do whatever it takes to turn lazy, bad and inadequate parents into good ones. The author states that she is writing the book to "define this new morality, and to explain why we collude with it at our peril. I want to explain where these ideas came from, why they have so much public support and why, seeing the world in terms of good and evil has created a moral panic that has resulted in the new morality". She explores how the scandals, the scare statistics and public events - such as Mandy Allwood, the Home Alone children, the divorce epidemic, Louise Woodward, the Julia Somerville bath photos, the murder of the headteacher Phillip Lawrence, unmarried teenage mothers, Jack Straw and son - have turned a vague national anxiety into a panic.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
