Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Ann Hulbert's book is that rarest of thingsa really intelligent, sophisticated, and knowledgeable book about childrearing. She tells the fascinating, complicated, and often surprising story of a distinctively American phenomenonthe child-raising expert. By weaving together the histories of the men who gave advice and the women who took it (or didn't), she provides an important corrective to the simplicities of the typical 'baby books'. More, her subtle and wide-ranging knowledge of the science, history, and politics of child-rearing provides real insight into the dilemmas individual parents, and the nation, face today." Alison Gopnik, coauthor ofThe Scientist in the Crib: Minds, Brains, and How Children Learn "Ann Hulbert's unfailing generosity and kindness toward experts, parents, and children alike result in a book of incisive ideas as well as wonderful stories about raising children.Raising Americaimmeasurably enhances our ability to understand the mixture of our own confusions and good intentions, both as parents and as veterans of our family pasts." Christine Stansell, author ofAmerican Moderns "Ann Hulbert is one of the most astute observers of American cultural mores. She casts a discerning eye on our peculiar reverence for child-rearing experts. Over the last century American children have been unwitting research subjects, their parents the researchers, with the experts offstage writing the scripts on how to raise better if not perfect children. The story she tells is at once touching and troubling. Nobody does this better." Jean Bethke Elshtain, author ofJane Addams and the Dream of American Democracy "Were I to recommend one book to a new parent, it wouldn't be a how-to manual, but rather Ann Hulbert's diverting and thoroughly illuminating study,Raising America. . . . It's a fine-grained survey of all the major American child-rearing experts, but it's also something more: a kind of secret history of the times, laying out the symbiosis between the growing culture of expertise and parental anxiety." Steven Metcalf,The New York Observer "Lucidly written . . . thought-provoking . . . Not merely an account of a "century of advice" but also a history of the ways in which our ideas about families, women, childhood and adult responsibility have and have not shifted over the course of a hundred years. Hulbert's achievement is to examine our hopes and fears as they are played out in the lives of our children and to understand how we have come to determine the proper time to pick up a crying baby." Francine Prose, front cover,L.A. Times Book Review "Raising Americais a generation-by-generation history of advice, and the joy of this book is in how successfully Hulbert renders the taste and smell of the circus. Here are the same kinds of runaway and pediatric best-sellers as we have today . . . the same folksy Dr. Feelgoods. . ." Sandra Tsing Loh,The Atlantic Monthly "Provocative and informative . . . a model of lay scholarship . . . Here is the story of how Drs. Hall and Holt begat Drs. Gesell and Watson, who begat Dr. Spock and even Dr. Seuss, and how they in turn spawned an entire mini-industry of parenting experts . . . With a flair for wordplay and a taste for irony, Hulbert documents the upbringings of the experts themselves, the fluctuations in their advice and the details of their downfalls." Publishers Weekly "Hulbert could hardly have taken on a more ambitious assignment, and for the most part she succeeds beau

ID: 2592042

Emerging out of the era of the robber barons and Theodore Roosevelt's desire to "civilize capitalism," the Food and Drug Administration was created to stop the trade in adulterated meats and quack drugs. In the almost one hundred years since, it has evolved from a squad of eleven inspectors dogging dishonest tradesmen into America's most important regulatory agency, keeping tabs on the products of about 95,000 businesses and more than $1 trillion worth of goods annually.This book shows how the agency combats self-serving political and industrial interests and protects Americans from hazardous medicines, medical devices, and foodstuffs while enforcing rigorous scientific standards. Hilts takes us back to the FDA's beginnings, when it confronted businesses that acknowledged no limitations on what could be brought to market or on the claims they could make for a product. With the coming of the FDA, our government, for the first time, was able to force the removal of toxic elixirs from the shelves and to insist on accurate labeling.We see the subsequent fights the FDA waged, and won, for mandatory testing, and against such conservatives as-in our own time-Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich, who tried to curtail regulation. We see how the FDA protected the American consumer from thalidomide and other lethal pharmaceuticals, how it took on the tobacco industry, and how it stumbled in confronting the deadly mysteries of AIDS. And we are given, as well, a litany of extr administration and medicine economics,administration and policy,government,health policy,health fitness and dieting,medical books,medicine and health sciences,national,political science,politics and government Medical Books, Knopf
