Summary: Discussing issues of parent-child contact ranging from breastfeeding and sleeping arrangements to sexual abuse, Jean O'Malley Halley traces the evolution of mainstream ideas about touching between adults and children over the course of the twentieth century in the United States.Boundaries of Touchshows how arguments about adult-child touch have been politicized, simplified, and bifurcated into ''naturalist'' and ''behaviorist'' viewpoints, thereby sharpening certain binary constructi

Throughout, she reveals how the parent-child relationship, far from being a private or benign subject, continues as a highly contested, politicized affair of keen public interest.
