Overview

This solid revision of the best-selling Family Theories remains the only single-volume textbook to present family theory in a clear, approachable manner appropriate for both advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. James White and David Klein draw upon seven major theoretical frameworks developed by key social scientists to explain variation in family life, including the exchange, symbolic-interaction, family life course development, systems, conflict, feminist, and ecological theoretical frameworks. Recommended for courses in Theories of the Family, Marriage & the Family, Family Studies, and Sociology of the Family.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
White (social work and family studies, U. of British Columbia, Canada) and Klein (sociology, U. of Notre Dame, US) explain the reasoning behind a variety of theoretical frameworks dealing with the family. Each chapter discusses intellectual traditions, focus and scope assumptions, concepts, propositions, variations, empirical applications, implications for intervention, and critiques. The theoretical frameworks discussed include social exchange and choice, symbolic interaction, family life course development, systems, conflict, feminist, and ecological theories. Annotation c.
