Book Description Pelican/Penguin Books. paperback. Condition: Good In Worn Wrappers. New York. . . Pelican/Penguin Books. Abridged and Revised Pelican Paperback Edition. Good In Worn Wrappers. ISBN:0140221654. . 447 pages. paperback. . The cover shows a detail from ‘The Cholmondeley Sisters.’. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This book, specially abridged for Pelicans, documents the extraordinary changes in attitudes towards the individual and towards emotion that took place in Britain between 1500 and 1800. In it the author studies the evolution of the family, from the (to us) impersonal, economically bonded and precarious extended family group of the sixteenth century to the smaller, affectively bonded nuclear unit that had appeared by the end of the eighteenth century, and shows how this process radically influenced child-rearing, education, contraception, sexual behaviour and marriage. Richly and intimately documented, logical, lucid, ‘passionate and original’, this is a work that challenges all conventional views hitherto held about English society at that period. ‘Often surprising, sometimes diverting, always thought-provoking’ — John Kenyon in the Observer. Lawrence Stone (4 December 1919 – 16 June 1999) was an English historian of early modern Britain. He is noted for his work on the English Civil War and the history of marriage, families and the aristocracy. He was educated at Charterhouse School and Christ Church, Oxford. He was a lecturer at University College, Oxford, from 1947 to 1950, and a Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford, from 1950 to 1963. After 1963 he was Dodge Professor of History at Princeton University, and Director of the Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Historical Studies, also at Princeton. Professor Stone contributed numerous articles to learned journals and periodicals. His published works include The Causes of the English Revolution, 1529-1642, Crisis of the Aristocracy, 1558-1641, and (editor) School ing and Society. He is also author of Sculpture in Britain: The Middle Ages, published in The Pelican History of Art series. inventory #43298. Seller Inventory # z43298
