Characteristics of the Western Family Considered Over Time
Laslett, Peter
Journal of Family History, 2, 2, 89-114, Sum 77
This paper lists four interdependent family characteristics, and argues that they have been distinguishing features of the Western family for several centuries. They are: family membership, mother's age during childbearing, spouse age difference, and presence of other people. Their interrelationships and possible importance in personality formation are discussed. (Author)
