Marriages and Families
Lamanna and Riedmann use a decision making theme within a framework of sociological research and theory to give students the tools they need to make decisions about their relationships, marriages, and families. This framework helps students understand that their individual actions and choices are influenced by broader social forces, while helping them examine their personal choices and goals. The authors affirm the diversity of families and relationships today, providing a context for any student, whatever his or her age, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
