Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Revised and updated edition (fifth edition, 1988) of an introductory textbook that presents an objective description and analysis of contemporary US families within a world perspective, including an examination of nontraditional family and marital life-styles. (Note: the flyleaf identifies the paper used as recycled and acid-free, but Book News' testing reveals the pages to be acidic, i.e. pH 6.0 or below--an unimportant consideration in short-lived textbooks, but such inaccuracy in labelling merits notice.) Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
