Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an annotated survey of the critical editions of sources for the history of the family in relation to Tuscany, for a span of over fifty years, and for two historical eras. Family history has been, in the last fifty years, one of the principal sectors of social history, and in consequence it produced a very large number of studies. Its development is in general along the three lines defined by Michael Anderson as early as 1982 and generally accepted since: the family structures, which corresponds to an historical-demographical approach; family relations, or the affective relations between the members and the ways in which they interact; the economy of the family, the characteristics and management of the patrimony, its transformations over time, and the strategies used to conserve or transmit it.
