?This well-organized ... account of turn-of-the-century child-saving efforts focuses on the treatment of dependent and neglected children, including the orphaned, destitute, deserted, illegitimate, and ill-treated. Providing ample documentation of nineteenth-century practices ... the author traces the professionalization of child welfare reform, examining legislative initiatives and bureaucratic growth as well as new methods of treatment and care. Concentrating on the philosophical underpinnings of the movement, Tiffin captures the flavor of the Progressive era....?-American Journal of Education
