9780075497950: Families: Changing trends in Canada

This text is now available in a new edition.

With Families: Changing Trends in Canada, Maureen Baker's aim has always been to create a Canadian textbook in family studies for post-secondary students, which incorporates an interdisciplinary, historical, comparative and mainly structural perspective, but which is inclusive of various theoretical perspectives. Now a market-leader that is widely adopted for the first course in Sociology of the Family, the NEW 5th Edition of Families: Changing Trends in Canada introduces four new contributors to the text, giving the text more balance while also allowing the book to benefit from some young, up-and-coming scholars in the field.

Revised to ensure up-to-date coverage of key issues in accordance with its high academic reputation, the fifth edition of Families: Changing Trends in Canada reflects the evolving nature of the family by paying increased attention to gay, lesbian and multicultural issues.

About the Author:

Professor Maureen Baker is the Head of the Sociology Department at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. She received her first two degrees from the University of Toronto and her doctorate in Sociology from the University of Alberta in 1975. Since then, she has taught in several Canadian universities, including the University of Toronto and McGill University, as well as in Australia. From 1984 to 1990 she worked as a senior researcher in Ottawa for Canada's Parliament, specializing in policy issues relating to families, women and children. Professor Baker is the author of eleven books and over 50 articles on family trends, aging, adolescent women, cross-national family policies, and women and work. Both the Canadian and New Zealand governments have funded her policy-oriented research, and she has been a consultant for several governments and numerous voluntary organizations. Her latest book (with husband David Tippin) examines the processes and discourse of restructuring social programs for low-income mothers in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Britain. She has lived and worked in New Zealand since January 1998 but maintains close ties with colleagues and family in Canada.
