"Working Hard and Living Out: Adolescence in Nineteenth-Century Dubuque"
by Jennifer E. Mack and Dustin S. Clarke
Mack and Clarke examine how young people experienced the period of adolescence in mid- to late nineteenth-century Dubuque. By drawing richly on census records and a collection of local memoirs and biographies, they illustrate the contested process of transitioning from childhood to adulthood in the American Midwest.
"From Fair View Farm to Parkview Heights: Involuntary Annexation and the Middle-American Dream"
by Edith M. Hunter
Hunter explores how involuntary land annexation in Ames transformed a family farm into an urban neighborhood in the mid-twentieth century. Through family histories and local newspapers, she argues that midcentury definitions of progress and governmental support for suburbanization led to the dispossession of rural landholders.
