This book, which is filled with reports of programmatic research, is grounded in a risk and resiliency approach to understanding family functioning and child adjustment. In the studies of families headed by single or repartnered parents, the complexity of problems and solutions alike is examined through the lens of increased theoretical and methodological sophistication. Readers from all the social sciences will find the striking diversity of situations and outcomes fascinating and the authors' explanations illuminating.
