Ix, 282 pages ; 25 cm. "The family is a subversive organization. In fact, it is the ultimate and only consistently subversive organization. With these words, Ferdinand Mount begins what has come to be regarded as one of the most influential works of social history in recent times. Published to acclaim in England and throughout Europe, The Subversive Family now makes its first appearance in America. At a time when public discussions of divorce, child support, gender inequality, adoption, care for the aged, and all manner of family issues are taking new and unanticipated turns, Mount provides.

For those whose short list does not include it, I take this opportunity to pitch a truly indispensable bit of brilliant and broadly learned writing that is guaranteed to cast an interpretive light on everything else one might read. When it was published in England in 1982, The Subversive.

British politician and writer, Ferdinand Mount, challenges contemporary beliefs about society and family including the history of divorce, childcare, and the concept of the nuclear family.

Dispels modern myths about love and marriage--such as the idea that romantic love began with the troubadours--promoted by various ideologues, and argues for an understanding of the family as the most durable and natural of all human institutions.
Comments:
Kelerius
A unique view of marital history that should be read, absorbed and discussed by all with political or religious ambitions.

OTANO
In this book, the author rambles endlessly attacking almost everyone for their beliefs without offering a shred of evidence in support of his own beliefs. He attacks Christians, Marxists, and various academics. The author claims that the nuclear family, based on love, was common throughout history. Is this true? I don't know and I won't know until I find another book that actually contains historical evidence. I only read the first 4 chapters of this book, so maybe it improves, but I don't have the patience to find out. I think the history of the family is an important topic, worth reading about, but this is not the book to buy on this subject.

Sinredeemer
This book so influenced when I first read it 20 years ago that it permanently and indelibly changed my view of the world, history and politics. I think of it often.

Mount's (well documented) premise that the nuclear family has always been the greatest threat to public organizations, be they religious or political, is insightful and important. Public organizations, in and of their nature, do and will try to suppress the loyalty of individuals to their immediate family.

This short and important book deserves to be widely read and to exert the influence it merits.

Clever
An amazing tour in common sense. You will know his thesis about the family is right after the first few pages and you will drift gleefully across the remaining pages, forever changed. Read this!!! Now.
