An account of education for motherhood that begins in the first decades of the 20th century, when the high mortality rate among infants, small children, and women in childbirth prompted a massive (Canadian) government campaign to educate women in the complex tasks of motherhood. Focusing on the period from 1900 to 1960, Arnup documents the barrage of advice from the experts and assesses its changing messages and its impact on women's daily lives. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
