The age of mass child removal in Spain, taking, losing, and fighting for children, 1926-1945, Peter Anderson

Summary
This book examines the ideas and practices underpinning state removal of children. Early twentieth century Spanish juvenile courts were involved in taking children from poor families, families displaced by war, and from political opponents.
