Product Description

Review

′This book covers an impressive amount of ground both geographically and in terms of topics. Stressing the themes of diversity and the need to take a global perspective in family studies, Deborah Chambers provides authoritative and lucid insights into some urgent scholarly and political debates. This is a family text for our times.′ David H. J. Morgan, University of Manchester ′This is a terrific book. It aptly demonstrates just how much families have changed even as it demonstrates that care and connection remain central aspects of the personal communities individuals construct. In addition, the author uses fascinating cross–cultural examples to shake complacency about which way is best. It is a perfect choice for courses on the sociology of the family.′ Margaret K. Nelson, Middlebury College ′ A Sociology of Family Life is an excellent text. Well structured and clearly written, the book will appeal to a wide range of students taking family sociology modules. It lucidly introduces readers to contemporary debates within the sociology of the family, expressing complex themes in a coherent and accessible fashion.′ Graham Allan, Keele University
