Using a framework of family functions, current research, and firstperson narratives, this text emphasizes the diversity of today’s families in structure, ethnic patterns, gender socialization, and developmental experiences. New for the tenth edition are expanded pedagogical features to improve learning and retention, as well as updates on current theory and research integrated through - out the chapters for timely analysis and discussion.
