Families and life-styles in the Netherlands and Europe, 1550 to the present.


This volume brings together twelve studies centring on family and household. Its themes include values and morals regarding family life, the family's ties to the local community, the role of objects in the house and the social character of taste. The focus is on the Netherlands but countries such as Germany, France and England are drawn into the analysis. Moreover, the Dutch contributions have been written from a comparative perspective. In every article the tension between public and private domains, in its various manifestations, is a guiding theme. The articles, taken together, cast doubt on the traditional notions of an unlinear development from public to private institutions. The articles form a selection of the papers presented at a conference the editors organized in Rotterdam in November 1994. It served as the starting point for the programme on 'group cultures and life-style' of the N.W. Posthumus Institute, the Dutch Research School for socio-economic history.
