"Allan Carlson is America's preeminent historian and defender of the family. This volume demonstrates that worry about the strength and durability of families is not new on our shores, but nevertheless that there is cause for concern in our current ‘cycle’ of decline. While the ‘crisis of the family’ is a recurring phenomenon, Carlson suggests that something uniquely worrying might be present in our current cycle of decline. His analysis should be both a source of concern and renewed effort to begin anew a cycle of family health and vitality.”
—Patrick J. Deneen, University of Notre Dame
