Reviews

Destined to have a significant impact on a number of different disciplines, including economics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, demography, epidemiology, and biology.--Warren C. Sanderson "Science "
The most important book on the family to appear in many years. Becker's stark economic conception of action cuts through the romantic mist that so often blinds social scientists to the hard choices faced by families and their members.--Michael T. Hannan "Journal of Economic Literature "
This truly pathbreaking book marries techniques and problems hitherto regarded as utterly incompatible--rigorous economic reasoning to understanding the family. The marriage is astoundingly productive. It is destined to affect the foundations of every science dealing with human behavior.--Milton Friedman
Becker dazzles the reader... To challenge us collectively to think about what we could not yet explain was Gary Becker's gift to us in the original edition of A Treatise on the Family. The new edition is a reminder that we still have far to go.--Debra Friedman "Contemporary Sociology "
