Naomi Eisenstadt (2011) Providing a Sure Start:  how government discovered early childhood, Bristol: Policy Press

This new book, written by a senior research fellow in the Department, traces the development of the Sure Start Programme, from its very inception in 1999 through to the present. It illustrates the policy making process, as well as the changes in how government thinks about services for young children and their parents.  Eisenstadt was the first director of Sure Start, and ran the programme for seven years.
