Reviews
"Thought-provoking. . . . Hulbert's achievement is to examine our hopes and fears as they are played out in the lives of our children." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Were I to recommend one book to a new parent, it wouldn't be a how-to manual, but rather Ann Hulbert's diverting and thoroughly illuminating study." -The New York Observer

"Raising America is a generation-by-generation history of advice, and the joy of this book is in how successfully Hulbert renders the taste and smell of the circus." --The Atlantic Monthly

"[Hulbert's] history is fascinating as it reflects the tensions and anxieties of a century."--New York Times Book Review
