Description

Sylvia Ann Hewlett, a white feminist, and Cornel West, a black human rights activist, join in a rare partnership to address the burning social issue of our time: the abandonment of America's parents. A "brave and personal book" (New York Post), The War Against Parents calls for a Parents' bill of Rights that gives new dignity to the parental role and restores our nation's commitment to the well-being of children.

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
"Given the crisis faced today by all children, especially poor and black children, many of whom are struggling to beat insurmountable odds, it is time for our society to look at what we can do to make parents' jobs easier and how we can change some of the things we are doing that are making it more difficult than necessary to raise children. This is a timely book that brings an urgent problem into much clearer focus." —Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children's Defense Fund One of America's foremost thinkers on race, Cornel West, and the founder and president of the National Parenting Association, Sylvia Ann Hewlett, have come together to stake a claim for the future of America's parents and children in their new book, The War Against Parents, which deals with one of the burning social issues of our time: the virtual abandonment of parents — poor and middle class — by our business, political, and cultural elites. In The War Against Parents, Hewlett and West call for a Parents' Bill of Rights that gives new value and dignity to the parental role and restores our nation's commitment to the well-being of children. The authors show how for 30 years, big business, government, and the wider culture have waged a silent war against parents. Moms and dads have been hurt by managerial greed, pounded by tax and housing policies, and invaded and degraded by the media. As a result, many children have been left home alone to raise themselves on a thin and cruel diet of junk food, gangsta rap, and trashy talk shows. We live in a nation, theauthorscontend, in which market work, centered on profits and greed, increasingly crowds out nonmarket work, which focuses on commitment and care. In calling for a Parents' Bill of Rights, Hewlett and West seek to unite America's parents behind an agenda that crosses the divides of race, gender, and class. Their bill calls for providing economic security, relieving the parental time crunch, strengthening marriage, and bestowing new honor and dignity on the parental role. The authors spent three years listening to the concerns and yearnings of parents across the country, and it is the voices of America's 62 million parents that give The War Against Parents its power. The War Against Parents is both a visionary and an intimate book. West and Hewlett explore their childhoods — one in a black, blue-collar America, the other in a white, working-class Wales — and with striking candor tell of their struggles to be good parents in today's society. Lending moral heft to the work parents do, Hewlett and West provide comfort and hope for healing.
