From the Back Cover:

Unprecedented social changes are taking place that pose new challenges for families. The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to the Sociology of Families brings together a collection of original essays that investigate partnering , parenting and families against the backdrop of rapid social change brought about by globalization, contested cultural values, severe economic shocks, new technologies, and widespread rethinking of welfare state protection for families today. 

Written by a team of leading researchers from five continents, these newly-commissioned essays maintain a focus on family inequality and diversity over the life course while offering fresh insights into new family forms and intimate relationships. Extensively reworked since its publication over a decade ago, the volume spans a broad range of topics including changes to partnering and parenting in North American, European, Asian and, Latin American families; inter-generational relationships; immigrant and transnational families; cohabitation and divorce; same-sex families; and many more. Authoritative and timely, The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to the Sociology of Families offers illuminating insights into the complex forces that are transforming family life in our globalized world.
