So what could justify a new book on the case by Ray Jones, The Story of Baby P, which claims to set the record straight, and yet another BBC documentary, Baby P: the Untold Story? Why, given it had many features similar to other tragedies that have impacted on social work, is this case still making headlines, seven years on? The answer lies in the new insights that are emerging about the case, the subsequent tribunals and the media coverage. This shows the true extent to which, through the media construction of Baby Peter, child protection became a deeply politicised issue.

This book is the first to tell what happened to 'Baby P', how the story was told by the media and its considerable impact on the child protection system in England. It makes a crucial contribution to the topic.

In 2007, Peter Connelly, a 17-month-old boy living in north London, died as a result of sustained neglect and abuse. Fifteen months later, his mother, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend’s brother were sent to prison for his death, but the media―who called Connelly “Baby P”―turned their attention toward the health and social workers who had been attending to him and his injuries during the eight months prior to his death. The Story of Baby P goes in depth into what really happened with Connelly’s care and examines the damaging consequences that the media’s treatment of his case has had on those who work to protect children.             Even today the health and social workers who treated Connelly are aggressively pursued by the press. Ray Jones uses this fact to tell a larger story of blame and the media’s role in it, moving from a direct account of the details surrounding Connelly’s death to a look at how the media shifted attention to child services and its failings. He then examines the impact the case and its exposure had on the child protection system in England. The most comprehensive account of Connelly’s unjust death and its ramifications, The Story of Baby P is essential reading for anyone concerned with social services and the real effects of public scandals on the people and organizations caught up in them.
