Treats Family Diversity as the Norm
Diversity in Families, 10/e by Maxine Baca Zinn, D. Stanley Eitzen, and Barbara Wells is organized around the structural-diversity framework. This framework views family diversity as the norm and follows that all families in society are shaped through their interaction with social structures. Families are viewed not as the “building blocks of societies” but rather, as products of social forces within society. The authors demystify and demythologize the family by exposing myths, stereotypes, and dogmas, allowing students to emerge with an understanding of why families are diverse.
