Overview

Examines personal belief systems and societal views

Marriages and Families: Diversity and Change empowers and challenges students to examine their personal belief systems and societal views.

Within an engaging narrative and a sociological approach, the text addresses the many issues facing marriages and families today, and provides many opportunities for the student to consider and apply the material they are learning in the course to their own lives. The book guides students to make informed choices and decisions about their own marriage, family and intimate relationships. It is designed for courses on Marriage and Families or Introduction to Families.

The Census Update program incorporates 2010 Census data into a course–simply and easily. The components of the Census Update Program include an updated census edition with all charts and graphs–to reflect the results of the 2010 Census. In addition, A Short Introduction to the U.S. Census is available and an updated MyFamilyLab.
