The six papers included in this special issue of The History of the Family have been selected from the proceedings of an International Seminar on The Intergenerational Transmission of Reproductive Behavior: Comparative Perspectives in June 2011 organized by the Scientific Research Community Historical Demography in Leuven, Belgium. These papers help to fill gaps in our understanding of the nature of intergenerational continuities in reproductive processes and to assess the generalisability of earlier studies by analysing fertility (actual and preferred, and quantum and tempo) and infant mortality. A major focus of the papers is on the key period for investigating this topic, the ‘demographic transition’ – the transformation from a relatively static and moderately high fertility and mortality regime to a more modern low fertility and mortality regime occurring mainly in the nineteenth century.
