"This book is an attempt to explore the relationship between children and their urban environment. It asks whether it is true, as very many people believe it to be true, that something has been lost in this relationship, and it speculates about the ways in which the link between city and child can be made more fruitful and enjoyable for the child and the city.
"But the title, and perhaps the very concept, are open to criticism because they imply that it is possible to speak in general terms about either children on cities. We need to be reminded, as Margaret Mead never fails to remind us, that 'It's a good thing to think about the child as long as you remember that the child doesn't exist. Only children exist. Every time you lump them together we lose something'..." (From the Introduction)

"The Child in the City tears down the walls and brilliantly highlights a culture which extends from Battersea to Bangladesh; the only true international culture, which in our search for 'knowledge' we largely ignore. Ward has produced a book which should go into every school, college and home, and also into every factory and office." --Times Educational Supplement
The author's perceptive eye for the physical environment picks up all the details that are usually missed by even the most practised observer, but which are central to the child's world. --Rosemary Dinnage in New York Review
