"An important contribution to understanding the socioeconomic influences on offspring of family size differential in post-transition societies. It is a superb illustration of how survey data can be used to address an important set of issues regarding human development and the family."
Oriel Sullivan, International Journal of Comparative Sociology
"Necessary reading for those interested in the intricacies of the argument concerning the relationship between family size, socioeconomic factors, intelligence, and educational attainment in the USA."
The children born since the end of the postwar baby boom are the first in American history to come primarily from small families--families of three or fewer children. Judith Blake calls this momentous change the sibsize revolution, and this book focuses on the cognitive and educational consequences to children of families of different sizes.
