About the Author:

Anne Meis Knupfer received her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa and is a professor of Education at Purdue University. She is the author of Toward a Tendered Humanity and a Nobler Womanhood: African-American Women's Clubs in Turn-of-the-Century Chicago.

Review:

"The strengths of "Reform and Resistance include an impressive and extensive bibliography as well as detailed footnotes that bring together many relevant theoretical approaches and current debates."
-Michigan Historical Review
"Knupfer . . .provides fascinating and original information on the definitions, causes and cures for female delinquency [with] an impressive range of primary sources. . .A necessary purchase for research collections on criminal justice, social welfare, women's history, or Chicago."
-"Library Journal, October 15, 2001
"Anne Meis Knupfer is part of a new crop of historians who insist on uneasy complexity, revealing children as actors in their own history and making us revisit the vexing present with new eyes."
-Bernardine Dohrn, Children and Family Justice Center, Northwestern University
"Building on provocative and intimate records of the institutional experiences of young women whose lives were touched by the juvenile justice system in Chicago a century ago, "Reform and Resistance is a distinguished contribution to the scholarship on the history of social policy, criminal justice, and the professionalization of urban reform."
-Michael Sedlak, author of "Selling Students Short
"Anne Meis Knupfer has written a rich and meticulously researched study. . . . she recovers the drama, texture, and complexities within the story of gender and juvenile delinquency."
-Karen Tice, author of "Tales of Wayward Girls and Immoral Women
