«The authors are members of the Canadian Families Project, who have created a computerized national sample of individual-level information from the 1901 census of Canada.» (p.3) The book begins «[...] with chapters on the general demographic context, and [...] proceed[s], in no order of priority, to chapters on family geography, on the social history of specific groups, and on the cultural context of the 1901 census enumeration.» (p.5) The results of the analysis are often presented by province, which enables comparisons between Canadian areas. «Each of the papers in this volume contributes to [an] image of family and household as fluid and diverse social spaces.» (p.8) The whole suggests «[...] that to understand Canadian demographic dynamics we need to go far beyond the well-worn dichotomies that we see so often in the litterature. Quebec versus Engish Canada; Catholic versus Protestant; French versus English; town versus country; rich versus poor; well-educated versus illiterate: all of these binaries are suggestive of some real patterns, but none of them, on its own, takes us far enough to tell the whole story.» (p.99)

« Contemporary debates about ’family crisis’ have led to a resurgence of interest in family history in Canada. The field builds on the strong tradition of demographic history in Quebec, and on historical sociology, historical geography, ethnohistory, and recent developments in cultural history. Recent projects in both Quebec and English Canada have accepted the challenge of international comparative analysis. » (p. 367)
