Editorial Reviews


Moving easily between philosophical and literary-critical analyses, Krupp offers an interdisciplinary study that should have broad appeal. In prudently avoiding the temptation to subsume the many questions his work raises under one master narrative, he allows his reader to see the interactions between the different histories of childhood that have been written and that remain to be formulated. If the test of academic research is whether it serves as both a reference and a standard of analytic rigor for the scholars who follow, Reason's Children passes with flying colors on both counts.
