The Family in Social Context

Seventh Edition

Gerald R. Leslie and Sheila K. Korman

Fully updated, this comprehensive and engaging introduction to the sociology of the family offers cross-cultural and historical coverage of a timely topic. For this new edition the authors have added a glossary, expanded and revised many of the chapters, and included a short outline at the beginning of each chapter to provide an overview of material covered. An entirely new section on adoption has been added, and the chapter on dual career families greatly expanded.
