Children and Youth in America

Beginning with the Colonial Period and continuing through the 20th Century, this series publishes anthologies of new scholarship revolving around a key period in the history of American children and youth. Each book is interdisciplinary in nature, but grounded in history, with original documents supplementing the essays.
