9781305503106: The Marriage and Family Experience: Intimate Relationships in a Changing Society

THE MARRIAGE & FAMILY EXPERIENCE: INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS IN A CHANGING SOCIETY brings together all elements of the course -- including intimate relationships, family policy, and family issues. Balancing an academic and more functional approach, the authors draw from research to present a sociological and family studies base enhanced by perspectives from anthropology, history, psychology, journalism, literature, economics, and gender studies. Available with MindTap, a digital learning experience, the book explores recent research on topics such as adoptive parenting, the transgender experience, childbearing patterns, gay and lesbian families, communication and conflict resolution, and the influence of popular culture. Real-life examples and a focus on self-assessment and reflection make the book accessible and encourage students to think for themselves. The thirteenth edition retains a progressive approach to diversity yet remains rooted in a positive, pro-family perspective.

About the Author:

Theodore Cohen is the Ella Fulton Dunham Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. Before coming to Ohio Wesleyan in 1984, he earned his B.A. in sociology from Brooklyn College, and his M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from Boston University. In addition to his teaching career at Ohio Wesleyan, Dr. Cohen has taught at a variety of public and private universities including Boston University, Northeastern University, Clark University, and Rowan University. Throughout these different educational contexts, he has found that enthusiasm, humor, and determination to engage students to apply sociological concepts to their own lives has worked with equal effectiveness in classes of nine or ninety. He brings those same objectives to his writing. In 1990, Dr. Cohen received The Sherwood Dodge Shankland Award for the Encouragement of Teachers, one of two awards Ohio Wesleyan gives for teaching excellence. In addition to being the co-author of THE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY EXPERIENCE since its eighth edition, Dr. Cohen is the editor of MEN & MASCULINITY: A TEXT READER (Wadsworth 2001). He has also published articles and book chapters on aspects of men's lives, especially their transitions to marriage and fatherhood, and on the family and work lives of a sample of nontraditional couples. Dr. Cohen's own family experiences include many of the issues covered and addressed in this text. He has been married, widowed, in a long distance relationship, remarried, separated, and divorced. He has also been a father, stepfather, and caregiver.
