A Crucible of Contradictions: Historical Roots of Violence against Children in the United States.
Finkelstein, Barbara
History of Education Quarterly, v40 n1 p1-21 Spr 2000
Examines the religious, political, and socio-economic traditions in the United States that help foster a culture of violence against children. Finds that Judeo-Christian religious beliefs are used to justify corporal punishment; political practice favors family privacy; limited government; and a separation between the public and private spheres.
