Editorial Reviews

Harvard Educational Review
The lives of children, a subject almost wholly neglected by historians, get a full measure of attention in the excellent documentary collection, Children and Youth in America. The rich material in these two volumes is superbly organized and imaginatively selected…a comprehensive and often somber presentation of the place of childhood in our national life--far and away the best chronicle of public policy toward children we now have.
Journal of American History
A new departure in the context of the needs and the social forces of the decade just past…The Bremner volumes will inspire a whole new wave of historical study…The chapter introductions constitute concise historical summaries of significant trends and events while, at the same time, they provide sensitive interpretive essays to assist the reader in understanding the documents in their precise historical context...The selections include items basic to the central themes; they also include primary materials loaded with human interest and excitement…Photographs and other illustrations brighten the pages. The editors were, in addition, peculiarly sensitive to all those social concerns which marked the nation during the decade of the 1960s.
