520    This book explores the ways that families were formed and 
       re-formed, and held together and fractured, in Britain 
       from the sixteenth to twentieth century. The chapters 
       build upon the argument, developed in the 1990s and 2000s,
       that the nuclear family form, the bedrock of 
       understandings of the structure and function of family and
       kinship units, provides a wholly inadequate lens through 
       which to view the British family. Instead the volume's 
       contributors point to families and households with porous 
       boundaries, an endless capacity to reconstitute themselves,
       and an essential fluidity to both the form of families, 
       and the family and kinship relationships that stood in the
       background. This book offers a re-reading,and 
       reconsideration of the existing pillars of family history 
       in Britain. It examines areas such as: Scottish kinship 
       patterns, work patterns of kin in Post Office families, 
       stepfamily relations, the role of family in managing 
       lunatic patients, and the fluidity associated with a range
       of professional families in the nineteenth century.
