THE FRACTURED FAMILY by Leontine Young: Is the family a dying institution? Have communes and the generation gap completely eroded its foundations? Is the concept of family living obsolete? Dr. Leontine Young deals with these and other questions in this absorbing book; her answers are disturbing, provocative, yet full of hope. The strengths and weaknesses of the traditional American family structure and the ways in which it has changed are freshly examined. Dr. Young discusses the replacements we have had to find for those elements of family life that modern society has condemned us to do without. She analyzes the forces that have put such pressure on our original conception of what the family should be, and stresses the need for the restoration to our lives of the warmth, understanding, tact, and trust that we have allowed ourselves to lose. Dr. Leontine Young is a social worker and Executive Director of the Newark Child Service Association. Her previous books include OUT OF WEDLOCK, WEDNESDAY'S CHILDREN, and LIFE AMONG THE GIANTS.
