The family continues to be seen as a central institution in Roman as well as modern, Western society. This volume draws on a wide range of disciplines to develop the intertwined themes of status, sentiment, and space. The book makes use of many types of evidence--from the legal and literary to the iconographical and archaeological, and draws on visual and material evidence in reconstructing real lives in considerable color and variety.

Review:

`A state-of-the-art scholarly survey of the Roman family ... It is nice to see the traditional and the trendy comfortably nestled together in one volume.'
TLS

`a generally well-written and valuable resource for undergraduates as well as scholars.'
Jeanne Neumann O'Neill, Religious Studies Review

`The series is now required reading for anyone interested in Roman social history, and many of these essays will be useful in advanced undergraduate courses in Roman civilization.'
