Pub. Date:
Mitchell (history, Alfred U.) gives general readers and students in their initial research a strong and up-to-date background in how families conducted themselves in the late Roman era, the medieval West, the Byzantine East, in the Islamic world and in Jewish communities. She describes the physical environment, the roles of brides and grooms, husbands and wives, and fathers and mothers, the perceptions of childhood and religion in relation to the family, divisions of labor and conduct of family business, and the workings of tradition v. transitional and non-traditional families. The illustrations and photographs are well-chosen and Mitchell supplies a glossary and concise bibliography. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
