Summary

This #1 BEST SELLER for Marriage and Family is the market leader due to its interdisciplinary research, perspectives and application (including Sociology), its focus on decision making and lifespan context, and its thorough, nonbiased coverage of American family issues. Lamanna and Riedmann, scholars, writers and teachers, provide an unmatched up-to-date research base and unparalled coverage of diversity in families, including gender, and cross-cultural comparisons.
