Shdaimah, explore these issues and more in their new book, "In Our Hands: The Struggle for U.S. Child Care Policy," a deep dive into the history of child care policy in the United States and an examination of the cultural forces which have influenced the debate as well as the lawmakers, advocates and stakeholders who have shaped the availability of child care in America today.

Here, Palley, an Associate Professor at the Adelphi School of Social Work, explains why the Presidential Summit on Working Families is cause for optimism, shares her thoughts on how a changing economy is expanding the debate, and discusses the growing influence men have in the child care arena.

In In Our Hands: The Struggle for U.S. Child Care Policy, Elizabeth Palley and Corey S. Shdaimah explore the reasons behind the relative paucity of U.S. child care and child care support.
Palley and Shdaimah analyze the special interest and niche groups that have formed around existing policy, arguing that such groups limit the possibility for debate around U.S. child care policy.
"Palley and Shadaimah have produced an excellent mixed methods study on the state of child-care policy in the US. . . . This excellent book will help readers understand a difficult problem and serve as a call to arms for change."
"The authors make a compelling case that for too long, child care has been marginalized as an issue, in part because it has been framed as a personal responsibility . . . As authors Elizabeth Palley and Corey Shdaimah document in In Our Hands, this draconian choice between providing cash or care is not a personal failure.
"Palley and Shdaimah's book is at its best in revealing the tensions among child care advocates."
"Palley and Shdaimah have done a commendable job at tackling such a difficult task.
Many commentators have lamented the United States' failure to establish such a system, and indeed, as noted above, the first part of the book is mainly a synthesis of the substantial literature examining child care policy both outside and inside the U.S. However, Palley and Shdaimah's research into what child care advocates actually think about their own work brings a unique perspective on this issue.
"In their quest to understand why the United States lags so far behind Western Europe in supporting early child care, Dr. Palley and Dr. Shdaimah interviewed advocates, researchers and others who have been working to address the issue."
Palley and Shadimah highlight the reasons for the inability of pro child care forces to develop an effective coalition.
Palley and Shdiamah look through the lens of social movement theory to remind us that in the context of U.S. culture and politics, building a broad based movement around child care is essential if we are to move from a piecemeal approach to comprehensive policy.
