Family Patterns, Gender Relations is a reader featuring a mix of classic and contemporary readings from Canada, the US, and the UK, designed to introduce second- and third-year sociology students to the key issues in family studies today. Through her thoughtful selection of readings and fully updated introductions contextualizing each reading within the discipline, editor Bonnie Fox explores the complex dynamics of family life with a focus on how gendered relationships continue to play a major role in the structure of today's family.
The updated edition has been carefully revised featuring 13 new articles, four of which were written specifically for this edition. New articles tackle a wide range of issues that are important in family studies today, such as transnational families, the influence of the economy on the family unit, divorce, stepfamilies, and an entirely new part covering social policies and the family.
