More About This Textbook

Overview

For undergraduate courses in the sociology of the family.

Focuses on studying the family through a sociological lens.

Families and Their Social Worlds discusses how the family is viewed on a macro level, by examining policies in place and how those policies impact families. The author encourages students to think about families beyond their own personal experiences, and even beyond family structure in the United States. Her goal is to impart a passion for critical thinking as students see that families exist within social worlds. Important policy considerations are imbedded in each chapter to illustrate what is currently being done, and perhaps even more importantly, what can be done to strengthen families and intimate relationships.


This Books a la Carte Plus Edition is an unbound, three-hole punched version of the textbook and provides students the opportunity to personalize their book by incorporating their own notes and taking only the portion of the book they need to class - all at an affordable price. It comes packaged with an access code to MyFamilyKit, an online supplement that offers book-specific learning objectives, chapter summaries, flashcards and practice tests as well as video clips and activities to aid student learning and comprehension. Also included in MyFamilyKit are Research Navigator and weblinks giving you access to powerful and reliable research material.
