Social structural expansion, economic diversification, and concentration of emphases in childhood socialization: a preliminary test of value transmission hypotheses

Ethos Vol/Iss. 12 Published In Pages: 363-382
By Welch, Michael R.


This article investigates the relationship between economic type and socialization of children. The author focuses on the concentration of value emphases in childhood socialization--that is, whether children are instilled with several different value orientations rather than just one or two. Value concentration is examined alongside subsistence technology and economic diversification; attention is also paid to gender differences.
