The Prime of Life: A History of Modern Adulthood (2015), a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice, explores how past generations navigated the transition to adulthood, achieved intimacy and connection, raised children, sought meaning in work, and responded to loss. In tracing the rise and fall of a set of norms and expectations surrounding adulthood, the book engages with a series of questions that have evoked a great deal of concern in recent years: Why it has grown harder to become an adult; whether intimate friendship is fraying in today’s hyperindividualistic, highly mobile, work-centered society; why marriages are so difficult to sustain; why parenting is so anxiety-ridden; and why adult life seems so stressful when many of the physical hardships faced by earlier generations have faded.
In September 2012, he became the founding director of the University of Texas System's Institute for Transformational Learning, which was established to promote the use of new technologies and active learning and inquiry- and project-based pedagogies to improve student learning outcomes, accelerate time to degree, and foster innovation across the System's eight academic campuses and six health science centers. He also received tenure in the History Department of the University of Texas at Austin.
He married Maria Elena Solino, a professor at the University of Houston and an authority on Spanish literature and film, in 2009.
Huck's Raft (2004), his history of children and youth in America from the colonial era to the present, examined childhood both as lived experience — shaped by such factors as class, ethnicity, gender, geographical region, and historical era — and as a cultural category imposed upon children. In addition to giving historical perspective to current psychological and legal thinking about childhood, the volume charted the evolution of public policy, tracing changes in ideas and practices involving adoption, child abuse and neglect, children’s rights, disability, juvenile delinquency, schooling, and social welfare policies.
The past president of the Society for the History of Children and Youth, he previously served as National Co-Chair of the Council on Contemporary Families (2004–2009), an organization of researchers and clinicians dedicated to enhancing the national conversation on the United States's diverse families. A board member of Film and History, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the Journal of Family Life, the Society for History Education, and Slavery & Abolition, he has also chaired the Organization of American Historians Teaching Committee (2007–2008) and served on the American Historical Association's Nominating Committee (2006–2008) and chaired the Organization of American Historians's Committee on Committees (2014-2015).
His history of antebellum reform, Moralists and Modernizers: America's Pre-Civil War Reformers (1995), portrayed reform as a vehicle for cultural and institutional modernization, the definition of middle-class values and identity, and the moral legitimization of new ideas about labor, poverty, deviance, and disorder. The Boisterous Sea of Liberty: A Documentary History of America from Colonization to the Civil War (1998), co-authored with David Brion Davis, used primary source documents from the Gilder Lehrman Collection to examine the role of race in early American history, politics, and culture; to trace the evolution of new conceptions of rights, including the notion of inalienable rights rooted in the laws of nature, minority rights, and the right to revolution; and the meanings, institutionalizations, and uses of power, including the invention of the people as a source of sovereign power, the growing power of public opinion, and the power of moral ideals.
His next book, Domestic Revolutions: A Social History of American Family Life (1988), co-authored with Susan Kellogg, was the first comprehensive history of the American family since 1917. Underscoring ethnic, class, and temporal diversity in family life, this volume identified a series of major shifts in family structure and composition, roles and functions, and emotional and power dynamics over the past three-and-a-half centuries.

In 2006-2007, he was a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. In addition, he taught summer courses at Pepperdine University (1994) and summer institutes for the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (1995 to 2004) at Yale, Columbia, and Rice universities on slavery, film history, and digital history. He was named director of Columbia University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Teaching Center and a member of the History Department in 2008.
A cultural historian trained in the methods of the new social history, he is the author and editor of 14 history books, focusing on such topics as families and children, antebellum reform, slavery and antislavery, ethnicity, and film. His first book, A Prison of Expectations: The Family in Victorian Culture (1983), examined the psychological dynamics within a series of prominent literary families in Britain and the United States against a backdrop of broader cultural concerns about authority, discipline, and legitimacy. This volume, an early attempt to apply the concept of Victorianism to the study of mid-nineteenth-century American culture, also sought to explore the links between familial experience and literary expression and reveal how family conflicts embodied religious and cultural tensions.
After serving as a visiting assistant professor of History at Oberlin College (1978–1980), he joined the History Department at the University of Houston (1981–2007), where he was the John and Rebecca Moores Professor of History and Director of the American Cultures Program, which offers comparative perspectives on the peoples and cultures of the Western Hemisphere.
