    I read this book for an Independent Study course through Brigham Young University called The Family in Europe , and it was a course option to take for my undergraduate program The course is based on studying the social history of European families.Reading about Roman families and its relation to the law during the late Republic and early Imperial eras of Rome was fascinating My personal tastes are in Greek and Roman classical periods, and I thought this was a nice start to it all Reading this book led me to add tons of other books that Suzanne Dixon used as references, including Cicero, Virgil, and many others.The book referred to The Twelve Tables, which was what officially establish the basis of Roman law, and how society was governed on that law.The types of families that existed in Rome were many the elite the wealthy and senate , other classes freed slaves, soldiers, farmers, to name a few.I gave the book four stars due to Dixon s writing style It seemed rather choppy and she seemed to go on tangents in the first chapter, making it difficult to follow her argument at times.
