i'm baa-aack! 🥳🥳🥳

thank you so much everybody for all the kind words and support yesterday! i got things in my eye several times last night reading all your lovely tweets (d*mn you!). i don't deserve such wonderful tweeps. (*^_^*) don't know why my account was suspended. i emailed twitter support, but didn't get a reply, and then this a.m. my account was back.

oddly, a number of #HistoryTwitter accounts were suspended yesterday for reasons unknown. maybe i got caught up in whatever that was? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

in russia, the nuclearization of the family *began* in the second half of the nineteenth century (journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.117…). in (core) england, the process was *finished* by the late fourteenth/early fifteenth centuries (academic.oup.com/past/article/1…). in japan, the shift from extended to nuclear families occurred between ca. 1600 and the late-1800s. see The Agrarian Origins of Modern Japan (books.google.com/books?id=YORxu…). below quote from A Companion to Japanese History (books.google.com/books?id=KC2T9…):
