Countering our image of early Anglo-American families as dominated
by harsh, austere patriarchs, Anne Lombard challenges long-held
assumptions about the history of family life by casting a fresh
look at the experience of growing up male in seventeenth- and
eighteenth-century New England. Drawing upon sources ranging from
men's personal writings to court records to medical literature,
Lombard finds that New England's Puritan settlers and their
descendants shared a distinctive ideal of manhood that decisively
shaped the lives of boys and men.
