Written by a team of experts, Exploring Family Theories, Second Edition, is a combined text/reader that integrates theory with research and applications. Presenting a diverse variety of perspectives, it offers students a unique and highly readable introduction to family theories.

In each chapter, Suzanne R. Smith, Raeann R. Hamon, Bron B. Ingoldsby, and J. Elizabeth Miller present the history, scholarship, and critiques of each principal family theory in a concise and student-friendly manner. Numerous illustrations and examples augment and clarify content, while application questions help students relate each theory to the real world. After each chapter, a follow-up journal article exemplifies how each theory is used to guide actual research.

Now in its second edition, Exploring Family Theories features contemporary--rather than historical--readings and a completely updated literature review. This edition also addresses issues of diversity throughout.

Clear, comprehensive, and concise, Exploring Family Theories, Second Edition, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in family theory.

Review:

"This is an excellent theory book . . . the writing style is clear and concise, and students will find it interesting. I really liked the practical application questions at the end of each chapter; they will assist students in synthesizing and applying what they have learned."--Bahira Sherif-Trask, University of Delaware"Standard and classic references are balanced with very recent references--nicely done. The 'Research and Application' sections in every chapter bring clarity and understanding. My students are often confused by theories and have a hard time keeping them straight. This text makes every theory memorable by tying it to real-world research and applications."--Mary Bold, Texas Woman's University"This book takes a reader-friendly approach to subject matter that is typically somewhat cumbersome to learn. The result is a straightforward presentation of theories that enables readers to grasp the basic theoretical assumptions and challenges them to apply the concepts to real-world situations."--Maureen Blankemeyer, Kent State University
