Excerpt from Diaries of Rev. Timothy Walker: The First and Only Minister of Concord, N. H.; From His Ordination November 18, 1730, to September 1, 1782 His modest salary, ale insufficient for his support, was supplemented by the income of the parsonage lands and the farm which was given by the proprietors of the township to their first settled minister. He thus became a farmer as well as minister, and, through this relation, was brought into more intimate sympathy with his people than he might otherwise have been. His pacific feelings and good sense contributed to the maintenance of friendly relations with the neighboring Indians, liable at any time to be provoked to acts of violence by imaginary grievances or the wiley counsels of the French.

Forgotten Children

'The history of childhood is an area so full of errors, distortion and misinterpretation that I thought it vital, if progress were to be made, to supply a clear review of the information on childhood contained in such sources as diaries and autobiographies.' Dr Pollock's statement in her Preface will startle readers who have not questioned the validity of recent theories on the evolution of childhood and the treatment of children, theories which see a movement from a situation where the concept of childhood was almost absent, and children were cruelly treated, to our present western recognition that children are different and should be treated with love and affection. Linda examines this thesis particularly through the close and careful analysis of some hundreds of English and American primary sources. Through these sources, she has been able to reconstruct, probably for the first time, a genuine picture of childhood in the past, and it is a much more humane and optimistic picture than the current stereotype. Her book contains a mass of novel and original material on child-rearing practices and the relations of parents and children, and sets this in the wider framework of developmental psychology, socio-biology and social anthropology. Forgotten Children admirably fulfils the aim of its author. In the face of this scholarly and elegant account of the continuity of parental care, few will now be able to argue for dramatic transformations in the twentieth century.

Knowledge Is Power

The Diffusion of Information in Early America, 1700-1865

Brown here explores America's first communications revolution--the revolution that made printed goods and public oratory widely available and, by means of the steamboat, railroad and telegraph, sharply accelerated the pace at which information travelled. He describes the day-to-day experiences of dozens of men and women, and in the process illuminates the social dimensions of this profound, far-reaching transformation. Brown begins in Massachusetts and Virginia in the early 18th century, when public information was the precious possession of the wealthy, learned, and powerful, who used it to reinforce political order and cultural unity. Employing diaries and letters to trace how information moved through society during seven generations, he explains that by the Civil War era, cultural unity had become a thing of the past. Assisted by advanced technology and an expanding economy, Americans had created a pluralistic information marketplace in which all forms of public communication--print, oratory, and public meetings--were competing for the attention of free men and women. Knowledge is Power provides fresh insights into the foundations of American pluralism and deepens our perspective on the character of public communications in the United States.

Samuel Lane, whose life in and around the town of Stratham, New Hampshire, spanned much of the 18th century, was truly a "Renaissance man." Civic, business, and personal concerns fill the pages of the diary he kept for over 60 years. The worries, dilemmas, and day-to-day work Lane detailed provide a compelling view of life in colonial New Hampshire. Together with his business records and family papers, Lane's diaries form an important part of the New Hampshire Historical Society's collections. Basing his narrative on careful study of this rich documentary legacy, historian Jerald E. Brown explores the life, career, and motivations of one man and his family. In a preliminary essay, editor Donna-Belle Garvin introduces Lane's world to the reader. The many illustrations of leatherworking, farming, surveying, buildings, bridges, crops, animals, and gravestones draw readers into the complex world and work that shaped Lane and his family. This fascinating tale is the most complete account now available of the life of a colonial New England artisan and tradesman.
