Critics’ Reviews

"This work stands as an important contribution to our understanding of the practice of guardianship boards and tribunals. … It] focuses on what it calls "narratives of guardianship", that is how tribunals handle evidence and reach their decisions. …[It] is instructive, leading the reader to consider issues of both theory and practice. It is considered in its conclusions, which appear well supported and argued … Inclusion in the text of case-study material including matters of money management, self-harm and sterilisation gives it a richness and relevance that will be readily appreciated by guardianship practitioners. This book is essential reading for all involved in substitute decision making." – Journal of Family Studies, Vol 7 No 2, (Oct 2001)
