Summary

This book is an account of the changes that the authors feel have taken place within the family since the 17th century.They posit that "the family's current relationship to society resulted from the effects of 'a series of far-reaching "domestic revolutions."' . . . {These are} (1) the economic transformation that took place when work began to be performed outside the home, (2)the demographic change that started when marital fertility began its steady decline in the 1700's--even as the average age of the population gradually began increasing from 17, 150 years ago, to nearly 30 today--and (3) the shift in the composition of the labor force as women's roles gradually changed."(N Y Times Book Rev)Index.
