Fashioning Family Theory: New Approaches by Jetse Sprey

This volume demonstrates the diversity of family theory, from the more traditional approaches of sociology and social psychology to more controversial ones from feminist theory, world systems theory and hermeneutics. The international contributors come from a variety of disciplines and frame their theoretical arguments around concrete issues including religion and the family, family power and men in families. They have provided a provocative and informative read.
