Reviews

'Overall, the work succeeds as a useful description of the treatment of the young over a long period of time.' – The Journal of American History

'This richly researched study of cases involving minors, largely from the New London County superior and county courts between 1639 and 1855, significantly contributes to our understanding of young people's shifting legal status.'The American Journal of Legal History
