  • Editor’s Introduction
    • Abstract: Readers who sense a little déjà vu in this issue will be forgiven; some of the articles revisit issues addressed in 10:1—children and the arts, delinquency, and new forms of trying to establish control over children. Yet each article either brings a fresh perspective to a traditional concern for historians of children and youth, or takes on a relatively unexplored aspect of the lives of young people. A pair of articles examine France at either end of the nineteenth century. Julia Gossard shows how authorities tried to turn children attending charity schools into spies, requiring them to turn in family members for immoral or illegal activities, while Miranda Sachs investigates the ways in which ...

  • The High School Yearbook
    • Abstract: In the fall of 1984, high school senior Beth Ellsworth and her yearbook staff were facing a tough task: how to tell the story of the good things that were happening at Harlan Community High School, while at the same time acknowledging the pain that they and their classmates were feeling in the wake of the agricultural crisis that was sweeping Iowa. While the obvious choice would be to focus on a big event that was happening that year, or to do a “sign of the times” yearbook, none of that was particularly appealing. After all, in small-town Iowa in 1984, “this isn’t really inspiring, this sign of the times,” as Ellsworth reflected. The staff made a decision. “The way things were going at that time were really ... Read More

  • Tattletales: Childhood and Authority in Eighteenth-Century France
    • Abstract: Just before dawn on April 2, 1734, François Penault, a tanner, and his wife, Marie Félix, a silk worker at Lyon’s la Grande Fabrique de Soie (The Grand Silk Factory), attempted to leave their ten year-old daughter, Claudine, at Lyon’s Hôtel Dieu (Charity Hospital-Orphanage). With nearly seven thousand children deserted each year at the Hôtel Dieu in the eighteenth century, abandoning a child was not an uncommon practice. But what makes Claudine’s case surprising was her parents’ reason for abandoning her. According to Claudine’s own testimony to the Hôtel Dieu administrators, a few days before her parents took her to the hospital-orphanage,1 she reported her father and mother’s misconduct to her teacher at ...

  • “A Sad and . . . Odious Industry”: The Problem of Child Begging in
           Late Nineteenth-Century Paris
    • Abstract: At 1:20 a.m. on the morning of April 3, 1898, two Parisian policemen encountered three children on the boulevard Saint Denis “practicing begging by holding out their hands to passersby.”1 Half a century earlier the children would have been imprisoned for begging. Instead, Louis Albanel, the juge d’instruction for the tribunal de première instance, ruled that Alfred, Gertrude, and Goldina Gerson, aged nine, seven, and five respectively, should be taken from their mother’s care and placed in homes for abandoned children.2 There, they would be taught trades preparing them for lives as skilled workers. The case of the child beggar in turn-of-the-twentieth-century France offers a perspective for ... Read More

  • “They do not know how to play”: Reformers’ Expectations and
           Children’s Realities on the First Progressive Playgrounds of Chicago
    • Abstract: The youngest boy in the photograph looks up at the camera in overalls and short sleeves, bare feet in the dust. He is posing in a hitter’s stance, sleeves rolled past his elbows, bat slung across his right shoulder, as a smile pushes his cheeks upward towards the mop of hair that falls across his forehead. A few feet behind, a man also stares into the lens. He wears a white long-sleeved shirt, a vest, a tie, long pants, and dark shoes. A bowler cap covers his head and shields his face. His hands are clasped authoritatively at his hips, arms and shoulders forming triangles on either side. Both the boy and the man occupy the same time and place, the yard of Hull House’s Polk Street playground in Chicago in the ... Read More

  • “Nudists at Heart”: Children’s Nature and Child Psychology in the
           Postwar Canadian Nudist Movement
    • Abstract: Have you ever noticed how happy children are when they are allowed to play in the nude? This is because they are so much more closely attuned to nature than the adults who have grown away from that. What we do is for the benefit of the young generation which we wish to grow up healthier and cleaner in mind and action. . . . They need nudism more than anyone else. Nudism originated at the turn of the twentieth century as part of a broad “life reform” movement aimed at moderating the impact of industrialization on the health of the German people. With a strong focus on physical health, evident in the popularity of nude gymnastics and hiking, nudists believed that nude recreation would allow people ... Read More

  • “You Shouldn’t Tell Boys They Can’t Dance”: Boys
           and Ballet in America
    • Abstract: I like sports, parties, and things other children like, but I’d give them all up for dancing. . . . Each step in ballet gives me a different feeling entirely. Dancing makes me forget other things like homework and trouble with the other boys in school. It means to me good health by developing a strong body and an alert mind. The word “ballet” conjures up specific images for most twenty-first century Americans. Swans. Sugarplum fairies. Tutus. Pointe shoes. Perhaps a generalized haze of pink and sparkle, with a dash of Degas thrown in among the cognoscenti for good measure. All these images, it hardly needs pointing out, are highly gendered. Anyone who has seen The Nutcracker, as hundreds of thousands of ... Read More

  • To Save the Children of Korea: The Cold War Origins of International
           Adoption by Arissa H. Oh (review)
    • Abstract: To Save the Children of Korea expands our understanding of Asians in America. This significant and compelling book by Arissa H. Oh is part of Gordon H. Chang’s Stanford University series on Asian America. It cogently explains the origins of international adoption of Korean War babies, which further encouraged US multi-ethnicity. Her well-researched, well-written volume describes the origins and legacies of the Korean War (1950–1953) and the resulting organizations and efforts encouraging adoption of Korean GI war babies. While adoptions from Europe and Japan had taken place after WWII, the adoption efforts for Korean War babies represented the first systematic program of international adoption on a large and ...

  • Youth and Empire: Trans-Colonial Childhoods in British and French Asia by
           David Pomfret (review)
    • Abstract: While colonial cities like Singapore, Hong Kong, Saigon, and Hanoi were home to relatively small numbers of Europeans in comparison to the settler colonies of Algeria, Australia, or New Zealand, David Pomfret’s Youth and Empire argues that childhood in these spaces served as a touchstone upon which regimes of race and hierarchies of power were negotiated. Pomfret’s sociocultural history explores the role of childhood in British and French colonial urban centers in Asia. Because youth epitomized both the physical and figurative vulnerability of Europeans in the tropics, attempts to regulate childhood mirrored the efforts of French and British colonial authorities to safeguard the future of a European project ...

  • Children, Childhood and Youth in the British World ed. by Shirleene
           Robinson, Simon Sleight (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most exciting aspects of a collection like this is seeing how different disciplines approach the question of historical children and childhoods. In this case, the answers are inflected by understandings of British imperialism and settler colonialism. The contributors come from archeology, art history, history, social welfare history, literary studies, and American studies, and together they demonstrate the multifaceted nature of child and childhood throughout the British world. Divided into six sections, the first part, on “Children and Adults,” discusses the relationships between these two sets of actors to examine hierarchies of knowledge and power. Shurlee Swain explores the role of ... Read More

  • Boy Soldiers of the American Revolution by Caroline Cox, and: Becoming Men
           of Some Consequence: Youth and Military Service in the Revolutionary War
           by John A. Ruddiman (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars have long pointed to how central youth was to the American Revolution. The North American colonists were a youthful people, with those below age sixteen constituting roughly 50 percent of the population. Dominating popular novels of the day, motifs of coming of age helped Revolutionary era Americans imagine a new kind of filial relationship that justified their rejection of Great Britain’s authority, as Jay Fliegelman argued in Prodigals and Pilgrims: The American Revolution Against Patriarchal Authority. Subsequent images of the Revolution as a natural maturation from childish dependence to adult independence undercut its potential radicalism, according to Michael Kammen’s A Season of Youth: The ...

  • Child Soldiers in the Western Imagination: From Patriots to Victims by
           David M. Rosen (review)
    • Abstract: Child Soldiers opens with the stories of two young combatants separated by several centuries: Andrew Jackson, who fought as a teenager in the American Revolution; and Ishmael Beah, who wrote a bestselling memoir detailing his forced participation in Sierra Leone’s civil war in the 1990s. Both young men witnessed and inflicted suffering. Both feared for their lives and lost their families. Yet Jackson’s experiences were later celebrated in campaign literature as a symbol of his patriotism and stalwart character, while Beah came to represent the modern child soldier, invariably pictured as a brutalized victim in need of rescue by Western humanitarians. “What process,” Rosen asks, “turned the heroes of ...

  • Our Gang: A Racial History of The Little Rascals by Julia Lee (review)
    • Abstract: When producer Hal Roach turned away a perfectly coifed child actress he found tiresome and looked out his posh studio office window to see a scruffy group of boys fighting over sticks in a lumberyard, the idea for The Little Rascals was born (22). Or, at least, this is one of several Little Rascals origin stories that Julia Lee discusses in her well-researched book about the franchise. Though it debuted in 1922 as silent film shorts titled Our Gang, the series was later retitled The Little Rascals and has had a long and controversial history stemming from the series’ depiction of white and black children playing together, its ever-changing cast of children, its transition from silent into “talkie” form, and ...

  • Architecture in Play: Intimations of Modernism in Architectural Toys by
           Tamar Zinguer (review)
    • Abstract: Tamar Zinguer’s elegantly produced book on building toys and architecture is a long-awaited addition to a growing academic literature on playthings, their design histories, and social implications. Zinguer’s book joins a series of exhibitions and catalogs produced by the Canadian Centre for Architecture (1990s); cultural and consumer histories, such as Gary Cross’s Kids’ Stuff (1997); and architectural histories of building toys, such as Robert and Brenda Vale’s Architecture on the Carpet (2013). While she stays within those established conventions, she also explores the tantalizing implications not only of the large-scale potential for miniaturized construction, but also of failure and destruction as a ...

  • Brown v. Board and the Transformation of American Culture: Education and
           the South in the Age of Desegregation by Ben Keppel (review)
    • Abstract: In historical memory and scholarship, Brown vs. Board of Education looms large as one of the central legal challenges to political and social inequality in the United States. Reflecting on this vast literature in 2004, just fifty years after the landmark case, Waldo E. Martin issued a call to his fellow historians to consider the social and culture history of the monumental campaign.* In many ways, Ben Keppel’s Brown v. Board and the Transformation of American Culture: Education and the South in the Age of Desegregation is a response to this charge. In a history of the years following the US Supreme Court’s decision, or what the author calls the Age of Brown, Keppel examines how Americans responded to ... Read More

  • Bad Girls at Samarcand: Sexuality and Sterilization in a Southern Juvenile
           Reformatory by Karin L. Zipf (review)
    • Abstract: North Carolina’s sterilization program became national news in 2010 when the legislature voted to offer reparations to victims of the state’s eugenic sterilization program. In 2014, the state began making payments of $20,000 each to qualifying individuals, the majority of whom were sterilized in the post–World War II era. Scholars, journalists, and politicians have dissected North Carolina’s postwar sterilization program, focusing in particular on its efforts to reduce welfare costs by rendering poor black women infertile. Karin Zipf, however, starts her story of sterilization and eugenics in the state earlier, in the late 1910s, when Victorian-era reformers successfully pressed state legislators to ... Read More

  • Socialist Fun: Youth, Consumption, and State-Sponsored Popular Culture in
           the Soviet Union, 1945–1970 by Gleb Tsipursky (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Gleb Tsipursky’s new study neatly encapsulates what may at first sound like an oxymoron. Where, one could indeed ask, was the place of “fun” in a culture committed to self-sacrificing heroism and the dignity of labor? But as Tsipursky demonstrates, even in the first years of Soviet history, work with young people, despite pressure from “militants” committed to Communist orthodoxy, was to a considerable extent driven by a sense of pragmatic populism. It was simply much easier, and indeed more profitable, to recruit participants in dance evenings than at lectures about the international situation. During the post-Stalin era (with which the book is mainly concerned—five out of its eight chapters ... Read More

  • The End of American Childhood: A History of Parenting from Life on the
           Frontier to the Managed Child by Paula S. Fass (review)
    • Abstract: Paula Fass’s book, The End of American Childhood, is an impressively ambitious synthesis of change and continuity in American peculiarities of childhood ideals and intergenerational social contracts. Gathering a vast scope of secondary sources as well as expert and cultural commentary, popular culture sources, and personal memoir, Fass accomplishes a feat of cultural history. Outside observers have remarked upon American children’s independence for centuries now. Fass traces American distinctiveness to a situation in the early republic. She shows how, along with Enlightenment ideology, available land to which Anglo American young people could expand, an absence of controlling inheritance laws, and ... Read More

  • The Virgin Vote: How Young Americans Made Democracy Social, Politics
           Personal, and Voting Popular in the Nineteenth Century by Jon Grinspan
           (review)
    • Abstract: Floats featuring caged raccoons, foxes, and bears; roaring bonfires and exploding fireworks; giant rolling leather balls; and fully rigged ships on wheels—these circus elements were part of the average political party rally of the 1840s. Designed to capture the attention of children, these events were just one of the many ways young people were introduced to politics in the mid-nineteenth century. While the study of youth and the study of politicking may seem like unrelated topics, Jon Grinspan convincingly argues in The Virgin Vote: How Young Americans Made Democracy Social, Politics Personal, and Voting Popular in the Nineteenth Century that from 1840 to 1900, it was young people who fueled American ...

  • Children on the Move in Africa: Past and Present Experiences of Migration
           ed. by Elodie Razy, Marie Rodet (review)
    • Abstract: Elodie Razy and Marie Rodet have assembled an impressive range of contributions to this fascinating volume on African children and migration. Many African states have been struggling to cope with large numbers of refugees and other migrants for some time now, and recent events have made African migrants a top priority in Europe and the United States. A noticeable proportion of African migrants, both within and outside the continent, are children, and this volume highlights the historical trajectories as well as the enduring legacies of child migration. The editors take a broad view of migration and set out to dismantle the “artificial boundary” (2) drawn between European and African childhood. ... Read More
