`This book provides an excellent overview and evaluation of one of the most overlooked Nordic child care policies, the Cash for Childcare. Leading scholars in the field investigate and critically discuss the variation in the scheme across the Nordic countries as well as the importance of the development of cash for care options for the otherwise service dominated Nordic welfare state model. The book examines the Cash for Childcare in the perspective of gender equality, consumerism and freedom of choice for families, balance of work and family life and the right of the child to early education, and provides a much needed opportunity for understanding why the Nordic countries with otherwise high female labour force participation and easy access to day care have introduced the cash for care options.' - Tine Rostgaard, The Danish National Centre for Social Research, Denmark This insightful book examines the meaning of, and impacts on, cash-for-care systems for mothers of small children. The contributors present a comprehensive overview of the major political and economic contradictions, theoretical debates concerning cash-for-care, and explore the possibility of implementing it into the social policy system. In social research, cash-for-care is often described as a reactionary benefit that operates against the women's interests. Economists, in turn, ask why the state should pay for reducing female employment and for care that is given anyway. Nevertheless, `woman-friendly' Nordic countries have introduced cash-for-childcare schemes and many parents are willing to use them. The book examines the payment schemes as a complex whole, where on the one hand the scheme responds to the parents' desires, but on the other, produces some questionable consequences. The authors highlight conditions in which cash-for-childcare schemes would not reflect any anachronism but instead will function as a useful tool of contemporary social policy. This unique book provides a broad theoretical and empirical view on cash-for-childcare. It will prove invaluable for academics of social work and policy. Politicians, social policy administrators and labour market researchers interested in family issues will also find this important resource an enriching read.
