American Families: A Multicultural Reader (Paperback)

£41.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

In the past forty years, American families have become more racially and ethnically diverse than ever before. Different family forms and living arrangements have also multiplied, with single-parent families, cohabiting couples with children, divorced couples with children, stepfamilies, and newly-visible same-sex families. During the same period, socioeconomic inequality among families has risen to levels not seen since the 1920s.





This second edition of American Families offers several benefits:









clear conceptual focus

new attention to the historical origins of contemporary family diversity

well-chosen essays by leading names from across the curriculum

explores the interactions between race-ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality in shaping family life

cCompletely updated and expanded bibliography of related sources

new companion website with student and instructor resources to enhance learning.





Leading off with a comprehensive and teachable introduction to the topic, this completely updated, revised, and expanded second edition of Stephanie Coontz's classic collection American Families remains the best resource available on family diversity in America.
