Description - Strangers and Kin by Barbara Melosh

Strangers and Kin is the history of adoption, a quintessentially American institution in its buoyant optimism, generous spirit, and confidence in social engineering. It says much about the American experience of family across the 20th Century and our shifting notions of kinship and assimilation. Above all, it speaks of real people striving to make families out of strangers.
