This book is based on research carried out in 2000. It explains changes that have taken place in the way families are formed and function. The family in present-day Uganda can no longer be fully understood using the nuclear and extended family systems. The lengthy and traditionally meaningful marriage processes are no longer intelligible in the current context where blood relatives are physically separated and living under different cultural, socio-economic, political and environmental realities characterized by different societal and security pressures. Intermarriages and need for cultural tolerance further shape these family realities. Changes in the family formation process and types of families that exist in Uganda have influenced the nature and types of roles or responsibilities that families have for individuals and the wider community. The book explains reasons for the changes from the historical and contextual perspectives to enable the reader understand the richness of traditional family values which may not be adequately appreciated if taken out of their historical contexts; and the need to rationalize the process of family formation and its functions in today’s Uganda.
Small businesses were at the heart of the economic growth and social transformation that characterized the industrial revolution in Britain. In towns across north-west England, shops and workshops dominated the streetscape, and helped to satisfy an increasing desire for consumer goods. Yet despite their significance, we know surprisingly little about these firms and the people who ran them, for whilst those engaged in craft-based manufacturing, retailing, and allied trades constituted a significant proportion of the urban population, they have been generally overlooked by historians. Instead, our view of the world of business is more usually taken up by narratives of particularly successful firms, and especially those involved in new modes of production. By examining some of the forgotten businesses of the industrial revolution, and the men and women who worked in them, Family and Business during the Industrial Revolution presents a largely unfamiliar commercial world. Its approach, which spans economic, social, and cultural history, as well as encompassing business history and the histories of the emotions, space, and material culture, alongside studies of personal testimony, testatory practice, and property ownership, tests current understandings of gender, work, family, class, and power in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. It provides us with new insights into the lives of ordinary men and women in trade, whose relatively mundane lives are easily overlooked, but who were central to the story of a pivotal period in British history.
