Children and Youth During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era by Paula S. Fass Children and Youth During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, Paperback (September 2014)

After the Civil War, urbanization, industrialization, and immigration marked the start of the Gilded Age, a period of rapid economic growth but also social upheaval. This book includes essays, which foreground the role that youth played in exerting agency over their own lives and in contesting the policies that sought to protect and control them.

Children of a New World by Paula S. Fass Children of a New World, Paperback (December 2006)

Focuses on the impact of globalization on children's lives, both in the United States and on the world stage. This work examines children as both creators of culture and objects of cultural concern in America, evident in the strange contemporary fear of and fascination with child abduction, child murder, and parental kidnapping.
