Nara Milanch’s complex and engaging book, Children of Fate, analyzes the intersections between the history of childhood and the formation of the liberal state in Chile from the 1850s to 1930. Her work challenges North American and European analytic categories in the discipline of childhood studies by focusing on state formation and social class-two areas of particular importance for historians of modern Latin America

Nara Milanich, Associate Professor at Barnard College, makes a thrilling contribution to Latin American studies with Children of Fate: Childhood, Class, and the State in Chile, 1850-1930. Milanich focuses on orphan children as they grew up in Chilean society over an eighty-year period when new laws caused unintended consequences for families. Milanich demonstrates how in Chile, bureaucracy played an overwhelming role in children’s lives. This book tells the stories of orphaned Chilean children and how they were marginalized in the community, contributing new insights to the history of childhood.

In modern Latin America, profound social inequalities have persisted despite the promise of equality. Milanich argues that social and legal practices surrounding family and kinship have helped produce and sustain these inequalities. Tracing families both elite and plebeian in late-nineteenth- and ury Chile, she focuses on a group largely invisible in Latin American historiography: children.

By tracing these child circulation practices-and documenting the state’s resolute indifference to them-Milanich offers a compelling counter-narrative to romantic notions of huachismo common in Chilean historiography.

In modern Latin America, profound social inequalities have persisted despite the promise of equality. Nara B. Milanich argues that social and legal practices surrounding family and kinship have helped produce and sustain these inequalities. Tracing families both elite and plebeian in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Chile, she focuses on a group largely invisible in Latin American historiography: children. The concept of family constituted a crucial dimension of an individual’s identity and status, but also denoted a privileged set of gendered and generational dependencies that not all people could claim. Children of Fate explores such themes as paternity, illegitimacy, kinship, and child circulation over the course of eighty years of Chile’s modern history to illuminate the ways family practices and ideologies powerfully shaped the lives of individuals as well as broader social structures.

Milanich pays particular attention to family law, arguing that liberal legal reforms wrought in the 1850s, which left the paternity of illegitimate children purposely unrecorded, reinforced not only patriarchal power but also hierarchies of class. Through vivid stories culled from judicial and notarial sources and from a cache of documents found in the closet of a Santiago orphanage, she reveals how law and bureaucracy helped create an anonymous underclass bereft of kin entitlements, dependent on the charity of others, and marginalized from public bureaucracies. Milanich also challenges the recent scholarly emphasis on state formation by highlighting the enduring importance of private, informal, and extralegal relations of power within and across households. Children of Fate demonstrates how the study of children can illuminate the social organization of gender and class, liberalism, law, and state power in modern Latin America.
