In 1987, a wave of suspected child sexual abuse cases swept through northeastern England's Cleveland region, resulting in the Children Act of 1989, which revolutionized the protection of children in the United Kingdom. The Cleveland scandal's lasting legacy for child protection is widely acknowledged across a range of professional disciplines. This new edition of Child Sexual Abuse: Whose Problem? marks the 30th anniversary of the Cleveland child abuse crisis, adding a substantial preface and conclusion that situates Cleveland in an international political and research context, as well as illuminating the connections between the events of 1987 and current issues in child protection. In this revised edition, Bacon and Richardson provide a context for the continuing debate about the phenomenon of child sexual abuse, its societal recognition, and the dilemmas for professionals in the field and their communities.
