Review:



"I would highly recommend this book...for the following reasons:

(1) it is written in a style that is both appealing and informative

(2) it allows for comparisons of past, current and foreign practices

(3) it is organized and logical in structure, and

(4) it has many features that keep the students interested (e.g., cartoons, In the Media boxes, vignettes, etc.)"
— Scott Plunkett, California State University, Northridge


"The text does an excellent job of identifying the trends in the field, i.e., changing definition of family, changing gender roles, changing rules of courtship, combining parenting with work, etc."
— Susan H. Alexander, Lycoming College


"The Summaries, Key Points, Critical Thinking questions, and Key Terms are especially helpful as they facilitate acquisition and retention of knowledge."
— Susan H. Alexander, Lycoming College


"This [chapter 2] is one of the best chapters on research I have read in an Introduction to Marriage and Family text. The author does an excellent job of presenting the process and content included in social science research."
— Steven Long, North Iowa Area Community College


"The author does a good job in providing studies and examples of research findings in marriage and the family. The theory section is also well framed. It provides students with an in-depth look at applying sociological theories to family relationships."
— CoSandra McNeal, Jackson State University
