Description: "I will put this book on my required readings list for all my U.S. History survey classes. The book is wonderful for all undergraduate and graduate students of modern U.S. History. It is well written and illustrated and most importantly it is thought provoking."--Nina Mjagkij, Ball State University"Superb. It is rare to have a book from the point of view of children."--Joseph M. Hawes, Memphis State University"This bright, well-researched history offers a striking view of American city kids at the turn of the century."--Publishers' Weekly"[An] earnest volume...Fortunately, David Nasaw has unearthed these colorful pieces from the remnants of our urban landscape."--The New York Times Book Review"David Nasaw is up to a bit of historical revisionism in 'Children of the City,' and he makes a most persuasive job of it....As Nasaw amply documents, [the children of the street] played an important role in American history, and in 'Children of the City' he has given them their due."--Washington Post Book World"[Nasaw's] evocation of working-child life is not only fresh but flavorful, zesty, insightful."--Kirkus Reviews"In this exceptionally readable, invariably fascinating book, David Nasaw examines how working-class children of America's cities labored and played."--Journal of American History"The scholarship and documentation are superb, and no historian of American society, American cities, American families, or American childhood can afford to miss it."--American Historical Review"A skillfully written, engrossing and memorable portrait of a unique moment in American life."--Los Angeles Times"With its photos and dialogue it provides insight into a forgotten or unknown social and cultural world--a world from whence many climbed out into the suberbs."--Roberta Miller, Ohio Dominican College
