His only rival for this label would be his friend, occasional coauthor, and colleague Pitirim Sorokin. Sorokin grew up in Russia, became a peasant revolutionary and a young minister in the brief Kerensky government, and barely survived the Bosheviks, choosing banishment in over a death sentence. They were teamed up at the University of Minnesota in to teach a seminar on rural sociology. Five years later, this collaboration resulted in the volume Principles of Rural-Urban Sociology , and a few years thereafter in the multivolume A Systematic Source Book in Rural Sociology. In all this activity, Zimmerman focused on the family virtues of farm people. Ogburn and Joseph K.

In this unjustly forgotten work Zimmerman demonstrates the close and causal connections between the rise and fall of different types of families and the rise and fall of civilizations, particularly ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and modern Europe, and the United States.

Zimmerman traces the evolution of family structure from tribes and clans to extended and large nuclear families to the small nuclear families and broken families of today. And he shows the consequences of each structure for the bearing and rearing of children; for religion, law, and everyday life; and for the fate of civilization itself.

He was off in his prediction of the collapse of the West he thought end of 20th century but his analysis that the West can not rejuvenate itself until and unless the family unit is delivered from its current hyper atomism was spot on. Indeed, I'm so convinced by Zimmerman's argument that I am inclined to think the best thing we could do would be to hasten the collapse by supporting the Feminism, GLBT agenda. Of course I could never "The man wrote in the late 's and he was clearly prophetic.

Of course I could never do that but Zimmerman's makes the case that throughout world history no civilization has ever rejuvenated itself once it has arrived at this point of decline in the family. Zimmerman comments that healthy families will prioritize proles children , fidelity faithfulness and Sacramentum indivisibility of family ties as a consequence of faith in God.

This suggests that the restoration of the family can not happen without restoration of Biblical Christianity and the restoration of Biblical Christianity will be identified, in part, by a return to Christian marriages having many children. Dec 29, Steven Wedgeworth rated it it was amazing. I don't agree with Zimmerman's causal analyses, and I don't think he fully understands Protestant civic thought, however this book is so very interesting, and the topic is so hugely important, that I would recommend this atop the list of any histories of society.

The role of the family is too-often neglected, and Zimmerman makes a compelling case that as the family goes, so goes civilization.

This is an extensive and comprehensive review of family structure throughout human history. Zimmerman goes into extensive detail on every aspect of the family and how family structure relates to civilization. He explains that civilization always begins with what he calls the trustee family structure, where the family is the law and is the self-contained governing unit of society. The danger of the trustee family structure is the likelihood of blood feuds between families since there is no higher This is an extensive and comprehensive review of family structure throughout human history.

The danger of the trustee family structure is the likelihood of blood feuds between families since there is no higher law than the family itself. He cites one prominent example of two families that all but wiped each other out in medieval France. The trustee family always evolves into the domestic family, where the state or church has the final say in marriage law, and where society tends to be more concerned with prosperity and building civilization.

Prosperity and the domestic family always evolve into the atomistic family, where personal pleasure and desires take precedence over family responsibilities and the family begins to disintegrate until civilization collapses. He traces the rise and fall of both Greek and Roman civilization while bringing other civilizations in for comparison.

The pattern is always the same: the trustee family creates a civilization, becomes a domestic family as civilization grows and prospers, and the then disintegrates into an atomistic family as civilization collapses.

He does a very good job of explaining how and why the feudal system developed and recreated the trustee family structure after Rome collapsed. If you want to understand family structure in a deeply historical context, this book will give you that understanding. I've gone through different books on this subject, but nothing can be compared to it. This book takes the reader from the genesis of the family and civilization to its apocalyptic destination.

It is a solid and impartial study on the history of the family, the end might be scary and pessimist, but not unrealistic. We just need to look at the flowing of the river and predict that it will end up in an ocean. I do recommend the reading! Sep 01, Pat rated it it was amazing. Truly prophetic from an intellectual point of view. The reiteration of the cycles in history as reflecting the rise and fall of 3 family types is a useful paradigm.

Tying this in with the rise and fall of certain empires and historical movements makes the analysis comprehensive and exhaustive. Fills in the gaps for me and clarifies certain modern lines of thought to within the overall context of the fall of civilizations especially as applicable to the American 20th century one. It is easy to se Truly prophetic from an intellectual point of view.

It is easy to see the road he feels we're on and I don't disagree. Hopefully family values of the highest order will return and disaster will be averted. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. About Carle C. Carle C.
