Publisher Comments:

Free Teacher's Guide available for Childhood in America!

Childhood in America is a unique compendium of sources on American childhood that has many options for classroom adoptions and can be tailored to individual course needs. Because the subject of childhood is both relatively new on campuses and now widely recognized as vital to a range of specialties, the editors have prepared a Teacher's Guide to assist you in making selections appropriate for your courses.

Collecting a vast array of selections from past and present- from colonial ministers to Drs. Benjamin Spock and T. Berry Brazelton, from the poems of Anne Bradstreet to the writings of today's young people- Childhood in America brings to light the central issues surrounding American children. Eleven sections on childbirth through adolescence explore a cornucopia of issues, and each section has been carefully selected and introduced by the editors.

Book News Annotation:

Collecting a vast array of selections from past and present—from colonial ministers to Drs. Benjamin Spock and T. Berry Brazelton, and from the poems of Anne Bradstreet to the writings of today's young people—this volume brings to light central issues relevant to American children. The 178 contributions explore a variety of topics connected with childbirth and infancy, adolescence and youth, discipline, working children, learning, children without parents, the vulnerable child, sexuality, the child and the state, and the child's world. Editors Fass (history) and Mason (social welfare) are both associated with the University of California at Berkeley.
