A Cultural History of Childhood and Family in the Modern Age by Joseph M. Hawes [epub, pdf, doc, kindle]

A Cultural History of Childhood and Family in the Modern Age ePub, PDF, Kindle, Doc versions Available Few people living in 1900 could have imagined what life would be like for children and families by the start of the 21st century. The 20th century brought improved nutrition, widespread immunization, lower mortality rates, greater access to schooling, more opportunities for communication and learning, and better legal protection for children. However, these achievements should be balanced by a recognition of the failure to protect and promote "the best interests of the child" and the family over this period. Wars, economic depression, exploitation, commodification, abuse, and discrimination - on the basis of ethnicity, race, gender, and class - all damaged children and families in the 20th century.A Cultural History of Childhood and Family in the Modern Agepresents essays on family relationships, community, economy, geographyand the environment, education, life cycle, the state, faith andreligion, health and science, and world contexts.
