Reader's Thoughts


Ana excellent text book on the subject of what is happening to modern families.


I read this text in my family studies class, but I would recommend it for anyone who has a family. The essays are thought-provoking and continue the scholarly trend of re-envisioning our definitions of family.


Mostly learning from this book ANYONE can write about sociology and be believed or at least published. This book mostly is full of hot air with little references and few studies. I am reading 15th edition not 14th.
