Summary

Public and Private Families: A Reader, seventh edition, exemplifies Andrew Cherlin's belief that families matter in both the public and private sphere, and the book's 28 readings reflect this notion. Keyed to the fourteen chapters of Cherlin's successful text Public and Private Families: An Introduction, also in its seventh edition, the reader includes both veteran and updated materials that both supplement and enhance the introduction.
