Example text

Is this not what is happening now, it may be asked. Are we not simply in another phase of social upheaval, a later stage of the ‘long revolution’? If we answer ‘yes’ to these questions and agree with the basic argument, we have also to recognize certain fundamental differences in the present situation, differences which are critical to the renaissance of the family in its older structural form. We have emphasized some of these in our discussion of the Hughes Family earlier in this chapter, and we will be examining them in greater detail and with an accumulation of evidence from a variety of social circumstances in later chapters.

27 Families in a Mobile Society industrial society, but ‘rejects his view that the isolated nuclear family is the only theoretically meaningful alternative’. Litwak sums up his own position as follows: The modified extended family differs from past extended families in that it does not require geographical propinquity, occupational nepotism, or integration, and there are no strict authority relations but equalitarian ones. 21 We have given this summary of the various arguments that have been advanced about the present-day urban family because, even though the cursory nature of our account does scant justice to authors quoted as representative of schools of thought, it is necessary and useful to see the picture as a whole before we concentrate our attentions on the characteristics of family life in Swansea.

We cannot be sure what will happen, but it would be rash to assume that all former patterns are permanently gone. The old working-class communities grew, over a century, from a situation of removal and exposure fully comparable to the present phase. 13 There is clearly a great deal of truth in this argument which urges that current events be seen in a wider historical perspective and which emphasizes the importance of time- and generation-depth in the formation of family and community behaviour patterns.
