Editorial Reviews

Review

"With rigor and clarity, Fass is able to draw fascinating conclusions...Indeed, readers familiar with Fass's previous work will recognize her lucid, foreful, and engaging prose style..."
-William S. Bush,Journal of American Ethnic History

“Thought-provoking”
-Choice

,

“In this remarkable volume, Paula S. Fass, a pioneer and pace-setter in the burgeoning field of children's history, demonstrates that a knowledge of history is essential to understanding contemporary controversies over child protection, the commercialization of childhood, multiculturalism in public schools, and the impact of globalization.”
-Steven Mintz,author of Huck’s Raft: A History of American Childhood
