Children at play : an American history by Howard P Chudacoff( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,639 libraries worldwide
If you believe the experts, "child's play" is serious business. But what do we know about how children actually play, especially American children of the last two centuries? In this book, Howard Chudacoff presents a history of children's play in the United States and ponders what it tells us about ourselves. Through expert investigation in primary sources-including dozens of children's diaries, hundreds of autobiographical recollections of adults, and a wealth of child-rearing manuals--along with wide-ranging reading of the work of educators, journalists, market researchers, and scholars--Chudacoff digs into the "underground" of play. He contrasts the activities that genuinely occupied children's time with what adults thought children should be doing. Filled with intriguing stories and revelatory insights, Children at Play provides a chronological history of play in the U.S. from the point of view of children themselves. Focusing on youngsters between the ages of about six and twelve, this is history "from the bottom up." It highlights the transformations of play that have occurred over the last 200 years, paying attention not only to the activities of the cultural elite but to those of working-class men and women, to slaves, and to Native Americans. In addition, the author considers the findings, observations, and theories of numerous social scientists along with those of fellow historians. Chudacoff concludes that children's ability to play independently has attenuated over time and that in our modern era this diminution has frequently had unfortunate consequences. By examining the activities of young people whom marketers today call "tweens," he provides fresh historical depth to current discussions about topics like childhood obesity, delinquency, learning disability, and the many ways that children spend their time when adults aren't looking. -- From publisher description

The age of the bachelor : creating an American subculture by Howard P Chudacoff( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 840 libraries worldwide
Howard Chudacoff describes a special and fascinating world: the urban bachelor life that took shape in the late nineteenth century, when a significant population of single men migrated to American cities. Rejecting the restraints and dependence of the nineteenth-century family, bachelors found sustenance and camaraderie in the boarding houses, saloons, pool halls, cafes, clubs, and other institutions that arose in response to their increasing numbers. Richly illustrated, anecdotal, and including a unique analysis of The National Police Gazette (the most outrageous and popular men's publication of the late-nineteenth and the early-twentieth century), this book is the first to describe a complex subculture that continues to affect the larger meanings of manhood and manliness in American society. The book contributes to gender history, family history, urban history, and the study of consumer culture and will appeal to anyone curious about American history and anxious to acquire a new view of a sometimes forgotten but still influential aspect of our national past

Comparative Cities Teaching Package by R. Burr Litchfield( Book )
11 editions published between 1978 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Comparative Cities is a teaching package designed to introduce students to analysis of manuscript schedules of the nineteenth century census for social, urban, family, and demographic history. The files are designed for use with SPSS. It was initially developed at Brown University with assistance of a project grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The file is organized to illustrate contrasts among cities at different stages of industrialization and the demographic transition in Europe and America: Pisa, Italy (1841), Amiens, France (1851), Stockport, England (1841 and 1851), and Providence, R.I. (1850, 1865, and 1880). The rural district around Pisa and part of Providence County are also included. There are approximately 1400 cases with information for individuals in each of eleven subfiles. These are random samples from the original 1:10 house samples for the four places made to permit flexible and economical student use. Summaries imbedded in the file permit analysis at the individual, household, or nuclear unit level. There are 142 variables for each individual. The package also contains a coursebook with explanation of each variable, a dictionary with occupational titles that appear in the censuses, course syllabus, and other instructions for use. The files are being used in the separate ongoing research of the two principal investigators and should be used for instructional purposes only. This teaching package can be supplied as two card-image data files, two files of SPSS instruction cards, and associated printed documentation. The package has also been updated with several files designed to be used with microcomputers. Included in the updated materials are four text files (Contents of Tape, Coursebook, Explanatory Materials, and Dictionary of Occupational Titles and Codes), a file of SPSSx data definition statements fo...
