96 pages, illustrated with 37 Tables, 7 Figures and one map. "This book presents the reader with the first comprehensive study of low-income families in Lebanon. The characteristics of 365 Armeninan, Maronite, and Muslim Sunni families are described in a precise and thorough manner. Mothers in these three groups are newly emancioated. They differ in history, cultural background and religious belief, but have a similar outlook on motherhood, kinship and family life. Armenians are new-settlers representing the cultural wealth of Aisa Minor. Maronites are old mountain folk with a strong village tradition. The Muslim Sunii are city people caught between conservatism and modernization." Chapters on The Method of Study; Births and Deaths; types of Families and Their Structure; Social Status, Housing Conditions and Maternal Care, and a Summary.
