Comparative studies in the size and structure of the domestic group over the last three centuries in England, France, Serbia, Japan and colonial North America, with further materials from Western Europe.

Aging in the past : demography, society, and old age( )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical demography has been preoccupied for the most part with fertility and mortality. Lacking so far is a conjunction of the history of age and the old, that is to say, how we have become old, with its historical demography, why we have become old. This is addressed in this volume, with the addition of some elements of comparative analysis. The significant contrast is between the condition of developed societies when they were younger and the condition of the developing nations of today
Bastardy and its comparative history : studies in the history of illegitimacy and marital nonconformism in Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, North America, Jamaica, and Japan by Peter Laslett( Book )

23 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first historical and sociological examination of bastardy ... during a four hundred year span ... the authors find: (1) distinct temporal and regional patterns in illegitimacy, as regular as those of fertility and mortality, and they suggest that fluctuations reflect changes in the efficacy of marriage; (2) a rise in the proportion of illegitimate births interrupted by two interludes of decline; (3) little impact of urbanization and industrialization on bastardy rates in Western Europe." Cf. fly-leaf of paper cover
