The history of children is a relatively new field compared to the history of education, gaining its original impetus from the work of social historians and psychohistorians in the 1960s. When I first encountered the history of children in the early 1970s, it was a nascent field, full of promise, but undeveloped and scattered across a variety of disciplines and specialties. In 2007, the Society will hold its Fourth Biennial Conference in Sweden. In June 2007, the first issue of the new Journal of the History of Children and, Youth is scheduled to appear.

Children became the target of advertising aimed at getting adults to spend on their behalf, and a new teenage market in clothes, music, and sport developed. Among poor and immigrant populations, children remained a source of economic support for families, but compulsory schooling removed virtually all children and a growing proportion of adolescents from full-time employment. By the 1960s, both children and adolescents were largely dependent on their families, an unprecedented condition and one that depressed the European fertility rate still further.

Childhood and Society was the first of Erikson's books to become popular. The critic Frederick Crews calls the work "a readable and important book extending Freud's developmental theory.
