Summary

"Two features I like very much about this book is the integration of gender throughout and the frequent references to other societies and cultures." Becky Glass, State University of New York, Geneseo "A specific strength of Sociology of Families compared to others is that it does cover the really interesting subjects of family privacy, family rights and obligations, and family definitions. This is a great contribution." Laura Sanchez, Tulane University "I think there is a genuine need for a text like this and everyone I know who teaches a basic undergraduate family class says that they need a text like this. It's organized around current issues and changes in the family; it's 'reader friendly', grabbing students' interests; it makes connections between a sociological study of the family and the students' experiences; and it emphasizes 'diversity' - race, class, gender, and sexual orientation." Judith Barker, Ithaca College "Never before have I seen a Family text that has offered such a unique and well-rounded view of the complexities of the family." Kristin Bates, California State University, San Marcos "I like Newman's consistent attempt to connect personal troubles with social issues, a wonderful way to make social science come alive for undergraduates." Dana Vannoy, University of Cincinnati
