REVEL™ for Diversity in Families is organized around a structural-diversity framework that treats family diversity as the norm, and highlights how all families are shaped through their interaction with social structures. Throughout the text, families are viewed not as the “building blocks of societies,” but rather as products of social forces within society. Authors Maxine Baca Zinn, D. Stanley Eitzen, and Barbara Wells demystify and demythologize the family by exposing myths, stereotypes, and dogmas—allowing students to emerge with an understanding of why families are diverse.
