about

A groundbreaking study in colonial history, this book gives a remarkably detailed picture of life in an early American community. It focuses on three basic and interrelated subjects largely neglected by historians—population, land, and the family—as they affected the lives of four successive generations. Applying demographic methods to historical research, Professor Greven presents new and unexpected evidence about the most basic aspects of family life in colonial America, and shows how these characteristics changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Philip J. Greven is Professor Emeritus of History at Rutgers University.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a study that requires discussion in superlatives. For the first time someone has actually charted changes in the character of the early American family over a period of time.... A model of the enlightened use of historical demography.... This superb book deserves the careful attention of historians and sociologists."

- Virginia Quarterly Review
