This book is a history of efforts made by urban social reformers during the years 1880 to 1920 to transfer control of children's play from the children and their families to the state. To achieve their goal, reformers urged municipal governments to construct playgrounds where the play of youngsters could be supervised and controlled... Reformers believed that supervised play altered the personalities of young people, improved their abilities to deal with the pressures of city life, lessened ethnic conflict, and, perhaps most important, changed prevailing perceptions of male and female sex roles...
