International family change: ideational perspectives
Lawrence Erlbaum, Jul 27, 2007 - Family & Relationships - 340 pages
This new book examines the growing influence international politics, interpersonal relationships, increasing freedoms, and individual prerogatives have on families. These forces are related to the changing role of individuals in the family and to current norms concerning marriage, relationships, and the place of children in families. Changing beliefs concerning institutional factors such as religion, education, and the economy are examined. Featuring contributions from an international group of scholars, this new book summarizes the latest global research on family change and challenges several widely help misconceptions. Global and historical trends in family attitudes, beliefs, and relationships are considered. Intended for researchers and advanced students interested in the role of the family on behavioral and social factors.
