Editorial Reviews

Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 32, No. 3 (Autumn, 1979) - David S. Berkowitz
Twelve years after the publication of the 865-page Crisis of the Aristocracy, Lawrence Stone has produced another blockbuster. But where the former put a period to an issue that had already waned in interest, in this work Professor Stone has opened Pandora's box, if not a can of worms. And there is every prospect that the historiographical-methodological issues he raises will be a long time in fading away.
Population and Development Review, Vol. 4, No. 1 (Mar., 1978) - V. T.
A work of awesome scope and speculation by a prominent historian who traces the changes in family relationships and sentiments from community-oriented, patriarchal, and authoritarian to affective, autonomous, nuclear, and child-centered ones.
