Grade 6-12-- Two volumes that do much to dispel the myth of the ``typical'' family of stay-at-home mother, working father, and two children. The authors suggest that biology is not destiny, that sex role reversal would be just as negative as stereotype, and that women today find satisfaction in vastly different ways. Although Motherhood gets a bit broad in its subject matter--there is a discussion not only of in vitro fertilization, but also of surrogate mothers and the legal impli cations therein, and of single women artificially inseminated from sperm banks--on the whole the books expand the definition of women's roles. The language, while appropriate to the audience and easy to read, is occasionally combative in its feminism. Black-and-white photographs illustrate both titles. Much new ground is covered here. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, IN
