Summary

This best-selling reader on families and intimate relationships identifies the most current trends, places them in historical context, and balances cutting-edge scholarship with perennial favorites. Many selections support the authors claim of a "triple revolution" transforming contemporary family life: the move to a postindustrial service and information economy; a life course revolution brought about by reduced mortality and fertility; and psychological changes rooted in rising educational levels.
