Between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, autobiographers and diarists adopted new ways to write about childhood and children. At the same time pedagogical ideas about child-rearing changed. The author looks at the connection between these developments. Autobiographical texts are set within a wider cultural setting, using paintings, poetry, pedagogical tracts and novels. This book shows how changes in autobiographical style, the concept of childhood and the working of human memory are connected.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the original Dutch version 'Uit de schaduw in't grote licht' 'An impressive investigation of Dutch childhood ... by carefully examining personal documents and their context, analyzing their genre, and a profound knowledge of the early modern period, Dekker tactfully draws conclusions and new perspective between the black and white legends of the family history debate.' - Benjamin Roberts, Paedagogica Historica, International Journal of the History of Education
