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 )

20 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 804 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."
