Reviews

"Broadly conceived, imaginatively researched, and eminently readable, "Everybody Else" provides a new narrative about 'family values' that highlights the aspirations of ordinary men and women, black and white, middle and working class, who found in children a motivating force for civic engagement, self-fulfillment, and racial justice. In providing a deep social history of the subjective embrace of children by couples without any or enough, Sarah Potter underscores how domesticity is never merely private but imbricated in larger social and cultural structures."--Eileen Boris, coauthor of "Caring for America: Home Health Workers in the Shadow of the Welfare State" "Everybody Else "is a valuable work for scholars of American post-war social history or of domesticity, race, and gender. Potter makes full use of her rich source material to provide a unique perspective on the everyday lives of white and African American married couples and families in mid-twentieth-century Chicago, illuminating striking differences between classes, races, and genders.--Kim Park Nelson "Journal of American History " Broadly conceived, imaginatively researched, and eminently readable, Everybody Else provides a new narrative about 'family values' that highlights the aspirations of ordinary men and women, black and white, middle and working class, who found in children a motivating force for civic engagement, self-fulfillment, and racial justice.
