Forsaking Our Children is the story of what happens when an activist sociologist and former welfare rights organizer is hired to reform a child welfare system. The book combines a compelling personal narrative, a critical history of the rise of the welfare bureaucracy, and a practical approach to reform. Hagedorn argues that genuine reform, which delivers critical services to poverty families, is possible even under today's adverse conditions. His contribution to theory draws lesson that apply more broadly to the educational, welfare and criminal justice bureaucracies which play a major role in the lives of the poor.
