This thesis is concerned with the influence of industry upon the -traditional rural family system and society as a whole in the Turkish town of Elmadag, which has recently undergone a series of changes. The intention is to explore some of the changes that rural traditional families undergo, by the introduction of a modern industrial structure. The data of this study were collected through formal and informal interviews of the 72 male members of the families who work in the BA$TA$ cement factory and the M. K. E. factory. The joint extended family-household has long been assumed to be both the ideal and generally, the actual form of traditional Turkish family structure. This study, however, suggests that not the joint extended family, but as a result of the transitional period of the society, the family type which is classified here as a "traditional nuclear" one may be the predominant form. The important key relationship within this family structure is between the father and the son. Industry directly affects the father-son relationship. The typical nucleation process of the families emerges as a result of the changing relationship between father and son. The other changing relationships within the household members are affected indirectly through the latter.
