This refreshingly succinct and engaging introduction to family sociology in Canada has a strong focus on contemporary theory and research on a wide variety of substantive issues relevant to the lives of students from diverse family backgrounds. This book is organised into three interrelated areas: the study of continuity, diversity, inequality, and social change in families; the life course of families across the generations; and critical issues facing families today, including social policy issues.

About the Author:

Barbara A Mitchell is Associate Professor of Sociology at Simon Fraser University, jointly appointed in the Department of Gerontology. She is the co-ordinator of the Family Studies Certificate Program.

Review:

The book addresses important questions of gendered literacies and effectively critiques essentialist and binary views on literacy and gender. The authors in the book are representative of the more influential researchers working in gender and literacy today. This is a valuable resource for teacher education literacy courses and for graduate courses in curriculum, English language arts, gender, feminist and masculine studies." - Ingrid Johnston, Professor of English Education, Department of Secondary Education, and Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies, Faculty of Education, University of Alberta
