0 Reviews
Single parent families, reconstituted families and dual-earner families -- this monumental effort synthesizes research and explores theories about such alternatives to traditional family life. Leading scholars were asked to write chapters about the new family forms. They review what is already known about their particular topic, its historical context, its impact on individuals and society and suggestions for future directions. They also deal with such key issues as the reaction of religion to these changes.
