(p.1) Chapter 1 What We Know About Families and Why We Should Know More
Families’ Values

R. Urbatsch

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter sets up the rest of the book by reviewing previous research about familial influence on politics. The scholarly literature burgeons on many relevant topics. Genetic influences on politics, the tendency of people to choose spouses (and partners) politically like themselves, and parents’ socialization of their children all are seen to connect politics to the family. These explorations have turned up many important and evocative insights. Still, they are generally cautious about expanding into other issue areas or relations. The remaining chapters of the book, summarized here, aim to look at a more diverse set of family influences.
