The current child care system in the United States can be described as erratic, inadequate, and stigmatized. In this comprehensive history of American child care policy and practices from the colonial period to the present, Sonya Michel explains why child care has evolved as it has and compares U.S. policy to that of other democratic market societies.
Author Biography: Sonya Michel is associate professor of history and director of women's studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
