"I am very excited about the changes made in this 3rd edition. With the expanded information presented, I most definitely plan to adopt this text for my Family and Community Relations class." - Judith Lindman, M.Ed., Instructor, Rochester Community & Technical College (RCTC) Rochester, MN.
"The summaries at the end of each chapter and key terms are always helpful but I really liked the applications, questions for reflection and discussion and field assignments. These help students to really get into the meat of the text in a practical way." - Irene Cook, Lecturer, California State University, Bakersfield.
