Goody examines the transmission of productive and other property in relation both to the prevailing political economy and to family and ideological structures, and then explores the distribution of mechanisms and strategies of management across cultures.

The history of the family is a branch of social history that concerns the sociocultural evolution of kinship groups from prehistoric to modern times. The family has a universal and basic role in all societies.

Continuing the comparative survey of pre-industrial family formation undertaken in The Development of Family and Marriage in Europe (1983), Professor Goody looks in depth at kinship practice in Asia. His findings cause him to question many traditional assumptions about the "primitive" East, and he suggests that, in contrast to pre-colonial Africa, kinship practice in Asia has much in common with that prevailing in parts of pre-industrial Europe. Goody examines the transmission of productive and other property in relation both to the prevailing political economy and to family and ideological structures, and explores the distribution of mechanisms and strategies of management across cultures. The book concludes that notions of western "uniqueness" are often misplaced, and that much previous work on Asian kinship has been unwittingly distorted by the application of concepts and approaches derived from other, inappropriate, social formations.

Not the most exciting of Goody's books for the general reader, but great for any student of human families. Goody has encyclopedic knowledge of the ethnography of families from western Europe to east Asia and the wide-ranging comparative perspective to bring the material into focus. He combines close reading with theoretical brilliance. This is the work of a profound scholar who has distilled a life-time of study.

I tried and did my best in order to read the book. After reading 80 pages, I jumped till the end. I came to the conclusion that the author had effected an exhaustive review of the literature on the matter in order to defend that Western families, after all, had been not so different from other types of Eurasian families. But he did it in such a dry way that only if one is an expert or really cranky about the matter one may bear the book.
