"In this important book, Angelique Janssens provides the first sustained longitudinal investigation of patterns of extended family structure in the past....It deserves to be widely read and is bound to stimulate further research." Steven Ruggles, American Journal of Sociology
"...a well-written challenge to Parsons' claim that industrialization inevitably results in a shift from the extended to the nuclear family. With her longitudinal approach, she demonstrates the value of qualitative analysis for grasping the interaction of individuals and society during social and economic change that intervenes between societal processes such as industrialization, and the family." William M. Cross, European Studies Journal
