Review:

Personal histories and roots have had traditionally powerful influences on families and history: this history of the human family probes kinship and the rise of family and group consciousness, considering the ironies and changes brought about by family names, individualization trends, and changing cultural traits. An intriguing study of family transitions. -- Midwest Book Review
