Illustrates dramatic transformations in the American family
Family in Transition, 17/e, creates a balanced view of the family from both current and historical points of view. The authors tap a range of research disciplines to create a broadly defined portrait of how great shifts in such areas as the national economy, life expectancy, and education are transforming the American family.
