Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book examines the character of recent changes in family patterns and household organization. It provides a systematic overview of these changes, and places them their wider economic, social, and demographic contexts. Particular attention is paid to the growth of new forms of solidarity and fragmentation within families and households, including cohabitation, divorce, lone-parent households, and stepfamilies. The book also focuses on the dynamics of family and household organization, emphasizing the changes that occur in domestic relationships over the course a lifetime. Allan teaches social relations at Keel University. Crow teaches sociology at the University of Southhampton. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
