Summary:
This book addresses the question of what world history looks like when the family is at the center of the story. People have always lived in families, but what that means has varied dramatically over time and across cultures. The family is not a "natural" phenomenon - it has a history. Maynes and Waltner chart this history over the course of 10,000 years, across the globe, drawing on telling examples and rich sources.
