Fields of interest
My primary research interest is in the history of childhood in the United States.
A second interest is in the history of American families. Most recently I edited the
Encylopedia of American Family History and co-edited Family and Society in American History. I was the co-editor of a series of books on American Childhood, including my own
Children Between the Wars. I also teach courses on American Indians and World War II, but I do not accept graduate
students in those fields as I do no research in those areas.
History of American Childhood (4863/6863), History of the American Family (4831/6831),
American Urban History (4871/6871), World War II (3815), Social and Intellectual History
of the United States (3863)
