The fourth volume in the highly successful Working Americans 1880-1999
series focuses on American children, decade by decade from 1880 to 1999. This interesting and useful volume introduces the reader to three children in each decade, one from each of the Working, Middle and Upper classes. Like the first three volumes in the series, the individual profiles are created from interviews, diaries, statistical studies, biographies and news reports.
Chapters also contain important supplementary materials including news features as well as information on everything from schools to parks, infectious diseases to childhood fears along with entertainment, family life and much more to provide an informative overview of the lifestyles of children from each decade.
