Growing Pains : Children in the Industrial Age, 1850-1890 - 97 edition

Growing Pains : Children in the Industrial Age, 1850-1890 (ISBN10: 0805741097; ISBN13: 9780805741094)
ISBN13: 978-0805741094
ISBN10: 0805741097

Summary: Childhood seems to evoke bittersweet nostalgia in every era. In her analysis of this developmental stage in the latter half of the 19th century, Clement (history, Pennsylvania State U.) harks back to a tumultuous period clearly ambivalent regarding its minors. In the Industrial Age, those under 19 years constituted almost half of the US population and a sizable proportion of the workforce--while being idealized in Victorian terms. Social workers may be particularly interested in the
period's patterns of, and remedies for, poverty, delinquency, and abuses in both the workplace and the home. Educators and general readers may gravitate toward the rise of playgrounds, and organizations such as the Boy and Girl Scouts. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
