From the PublisherIt was a pleasure and a privilege to read the sixth edition ofthis book. It is more difficult, however, to write anadequate introduction, as there are few enthusiastic phrases thathave not already been invoked to describe the various editions ofPhilip Barker’s book that have appeared since the first in1981.
I would like to be clear that this is an eminently readable bookfor those who are new to the discipline. Anyone who is not new tothe discipline, however, and has seen a previous version will knowthis; readers and reviewers before me have commented on the skillof the author, who could write a book on the complex andtheoretically diverse domain of family therapy that is at oncescholarly yet thoroughly accessible. Readers of previous editionswill find the update worthwhile and may be reassured to note afamiliar ordering to many of the chapters.
