From the Publisher"It would be appropriate for high school students, undergraduates, and the general public. The entries are well written, clear, and interesting."
"For high school and college students, scholars, and general readers, Turner (human development and family studies, Mitchell College) offers a guide to specific family crises affecting Americans in the present day, and how they can be identified, prevented, and responded to, with emphasis on their influence on children and how one family member can impact others. The guide focuses on 12 key problems: addiction, adolescent runaways, unemployment, infidelity, divorce, chronic illness and disease, caring for aging family members, domestic violence, school violence, natural disasters, deployed military families, and adolescent suicide. Biographical sketches of seminal figures are included, as are related statistics and documents, a list of organizations, and an annotated bibliography of print and electronic resources, including videos.'
