A Review of the Conflicting Theories on the Slave Family.
Davis, David Brion
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n16 p100-03 Sum 1997
Historians' changing perceptions of the quality of slave family life are reviewed as they developed from World War I to the present day, noting the paternalism that marked historians' thinking in post-War period, and the romanticism that characterizes some later writings. Controversy over slave family structures continues in present-day studies. (SLD)
