Child-Rearing Concepts, 1628-1861: Historical Sources.
Greven, Philip J., Jr.
This collection of readings, which focuses on children's education and family influences, is taken from authors of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Puritan-evangelical concepts comprise most of the book, exemplified by such authors as (1) John Robinson, (2) John Locke, (3) Cotton Mather, (4) Susanna Wesley, (5) John Wesley, (6) Jonathan Edwards, (7) John Witherspoon, and (8) John S. C. Abbott. A more liberal view of childrearing is taken in a five-part essay by Horace Bushnell. Each reading is accompanied by a biographical sketch of the author. (SET)
