"So often a long-awaited book is disappointing. Happily such is not the case with Sutherland's masterpiece." Robert M. Stamp, University of Calgary, in The Canadian Historical Review "Sutherland's work is destined to be a landmark in Canadian history, both as a first in its particular field and as a standard reference text." J. Stewart Hardy, University of Alberta, in Alberta Journal of Educational Research Such were the reviewers' comments when Neil Sutherland's groundbreaking book was first published. Now reissued in Wilfrid Laurier University Press's new series "Studies in Childhood and Family in Canada," with a new introduction by series editor Cynthia Comacchio, this book remains relevant today. In the late nineteenth century a new generation of reformers committed itself to a program of social improvement based on the more effective upbringing of all children. In Children in English-Canadian Society, Neil Sutherland examines, with a keen eye, the growth of the public health movement and its various efforts at improving the health of children.
