One of the pioneering works of modern sociology, Family and Kinship in East London is a study of family life in the East End of London in the 1950s, based on extensive interviews and case studies, which examines the consequences of moving families from urban to suburban public housing. The book was first published in 1954, updated in 1989, and is here presented with a new foreword by Judith Stacey.

Classy book that in parts shows exactly how families were in the fifties t includes interviews and case studies to backup the vies of the author it also shows how strong the family bond was back in the fifries and how families always stuck together, most were structured as extented families in those days and the son in law was regarded as a son and vice versa for the Daughter in law. Excellent study and put forward brilliantly by Young and WillmottWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
