Overview

Public and Private Families: An Introduction / Edition 7

Public and Private Families: An Introduction, discusses the family in two senses: the 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. The eighth edition of this program examines the history of families around the world while simultaneously introducing the most relevant topics in society such as same sex marriage, self-identification, and the globalization and modernization of families today. The Connect course for this offering includes SmartBook, an adaptive reading and study experience which guides students to master, recall, and apply key concepts while providing automatically-graded assessments.
