Raising the world : child welfare in the American century / Sara Fieldston

Publication | Library Call Number: HV881 .F52 2015
Book cover

Concerns the post World War II practice of US citizens' "adoption" of a foreign orphan (or child from a poor family) and sending aid and letters to that individual child. Also studies the NGOs that facilitated this practice. Argues that this practice was guided by the most up-to-date contemporary theories of childhood and psychological development, and was also thought to turn the assisted children into good anti-communists.
