Overview

Lewis (social policy, U. of Oxford) discusses contemporary understandings of marriage, cohabitation, and commitment. Challenging the assumption that individualism has undermined the institution of marriage, she contends that the erosion of the male breadwinner model and the weakening of an externally imposed moral code are more significant factors in the changes taking place. She further argues that governments should not try to turn back the clock when making family law and policy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
