Abstract: Families of finite metric spaces are investigated. A notion of metric type is introduced and it is shown that for Banach spaces it is consistent with the standard notion of type. A theorem parallel to the Maurey-Pisier Theorem in Local Theory is proved. Embeddings of $ {l_p}$-cubes into the $ {l_1}$-cube (Hamming cube) are discussed.
