Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 162958195X, Paperback)

This book explores the history of children’s toys and games bearing racial stereotypes, and the role these objects played in the creation and maintenance of structures of racialism and racism in the United States, from approximately 1865 to the 1930s. This time period is one in which the creation of structures of childhood and children’s socialization into race was fostered. Additionally, commodities, like toys, were didactic and disciplinary media in the creation, modification and reproduction of Victorian society. This volume:

will shed light on issues of identity, ideology, and hegemony;
will appeal to those interested in historical archaeology, critical theory, and constructions of racism and class, as well as material culture scholars, and antiques collectors;
will be suitable for upper-level courses in historical archaeology, modern American history, and material culture studies.
