by Mark Hutter

Hardcover(Older Edition)



Previous editions of this book have been at the forefront of changes in sociology's perspectives and views. No different is this third edition as it examines the family through a feminist perspective; addresses diversity and multiculturalism; and reflects upon the globalization of sociology.

D This updated edition analyzes the family life cycle from an historical and cross-cultural perspective. The issues of race, class, gender, and ethnicity are incorporated into the theoretical framework. Global examples are used to illustrate the diversity of American family dynamics. The book also explains how political and economic changes such as industrialization and urbanization affect the structure and dynamics of the family.
