Raising America - Experts, Parents, and a Century of Advice About Children (Paperback, Vintage Books ed.): Ann Hulbert Raising America - Experts, Parents, and a Century of Advice About Children (Paperback, Vintage Books ed.)

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, millions of anxious parents have turned to child-rearing manuals for reassurance. Instead, however, they have often found yet more cause for worry. In this rich social history, Ann Hulbert analyzes one hundred years of shifting trends in advice and discovers an ongoing battle between two main approaches: a "child-centered" focus on warmly encouraging development versus a sterner "parent-centered" emphasis on instilling discipline. She examines how pediatrics, psychology, and neuroscience have fueled the debates but failed to offer definitive answers. And she delves into the highly relevant and often turbulent personal lives of the popular advice-givers, from L. Emmett Holt and Arnold Gesell to Bruno Bettelheim and Benjamin Spock to the prominent (and ever conflicting) experts of today.

'Jean Stafford passed over the literary landscape of her day like some bright but wounded butterfly. Driven and self-destructive, yet wielding a scalpel-edged prose, she is often corralled with the Icarus generation of poets that included Robert Lowell (to whom she was famously married), John Berryman, Delmore Schwartz, and Randall Jarrell. All of them, it's true, felt the brush of the wing of madness, and their collective biography is rife with alcoholism, manic episodes, adultery, and, in several instances, suicide.' --Sven Birkerts, Mirabella
