Overview

Nationally recognized for its sound scholarship and balanced approach,and written by one of the leading authorities in the field,Public and Private Families,2/e examines the family through two lenses,the familiar private family in which we live most of our personal lives,and the public family in which we,as adults,deal with broader societal issues such as the care of the elderly,the increase in divorce,and childbearing outside of marriage. Consequently the book looks at both intimate personal concerns,such as whether to marry,and societal concerns,such as governmental policies that affect families.
