John Sutton provides a fascinating account of the changing patterns of reform aimed at the control of children in the United States. He focuses on a series of watershed reforms—from colonial Puritan strategies of child control to the nineteenth-century refuge and reformatory movements, to the juvenile court and the recent movement for deinstitutionalization.
