` Dr Bradley has established his reputation in the burgeoning field of Roman family studies ... He is producing original critical work and is an independent voice. The outline of the new book shows that he disagrees sharply with some recent and influential work...I would certainly want to order Bradley as a supplemental (or even required) book in courses on the family at the upper-level undergraduate and graduate levels.' Susan Treggiari, Stanford University.
'B. makes important discoveries regarding adult-child relationships within the familia , and adds a new dimension to our perception of the Roman family ... His message is a useful and necessary one, that we must not be so taken by the discovery of the Roman nuclear family that we are not sensitive to the many complexities that would, at various times in each family's history, have modified the structure of that family.' Tim G. Parkin, Journal of Roman Studies
'...it is particularly welcome to have an OUP paperback at a price affordable by students contianing seven detailed studies of different aspects of roman slavery and family life...his scholarship over the past decades has pointed the way to a more sophisticated understanding of how Romans experienced their social environment.' ( Thomas Wiedemann, The Classical Review)
