First published in the early 20th century, this book contributed significantly to an understanding of the forces at work in the evolution of family institutions in the United States.

Exhaustive in its use of primary and secondary sources, The American Family in the Colonial Period will be invaluable to students of early American history and of interest to all who enjoy reading about America's past and its early settlers.
