'In more than 300 photographs researched from every state in the nation, and supporting text, this book details what family life was like in Australia for a period of over 130 years.  This is done through a series of themes such as children, couples, parents, the home front in World War I and II and families in adversity.
Blended with these themes are 12 studies of specific Australian families, documented in photographs and text; some of these case studies are impressionistic, some richly detailed, covering three or four generations of family life and development.'
