Some brief overview of this book

The author of a landmark study of Pilgrim family life called A Little Commonwealth and the Bancroft Prizewinning Entertaining Satan here presents a major contribution to the rapidly growing literature on family history. Ranging over the entire span of American History, this book covers everything from the changing nature of fatherhood the relevance of the past for present-day policy making. Several chapters raise important questions and are sure to arouse controversy. On childhood, for example, Demos challenges the prevalent view that past eras witnessed more abuse than our own day. And on adolescence he reconsiders the premise that human development. His discussion of middle age points out sharp contrasts between the colonial period and the present. And his investigation of the much-neglected role of father finds greater change there than in the roles of all other family members combined.

Eschewing the narrow technical focus—and language—of most scholars of the family, be they sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, of historians, the book explores the subtle interrelations between past and present, between practical and theoretical concerns. Offering fresh insight into a subject of the broadest possible human interest, this vigorous revisionist history will intrigue not only academic specialists, but also practitioners in the helping professions and readers of history at large.

About the Author:

John Demos is Professor of History at Yale University and formerly taught at Brandeis University. In addition to his research as a historian, this book draws on Demoss personal experience as a member of the Carnegie Council on Children.
