Product Description

Review

"...a great work of historical intellect and imagination. It is the fruit of a rare combination of gifts. Trained as a sociologist, Therborn is a highly conceptual thinker, allying the formal rigor of his discipline at its best with a command of a vast range of empirical data. The result is a powerful theoretical structure, supported by a fascinating body of evidence. In it, you can find the largest changes in human relations of modern times." - The Nation

'The richness of the data and the text provide a fascinating account of how much, and in some cases how little, family systems have changed over the century, and the pace of the book certainly underlines the pace of these changes. It deserves to become a classic text for students and researchers of families past, present and future.' - Social Policy, Volume 36/2 - 2007

A gold mine 23 Feb. 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the book in 2007 and in a sense have never put it down. This is real sociology--for its global perspective, sharp analytic angle, and rich empirical materials. I cannot believe nobody has reviewed this book.
