Handbook of Contemporary Families

Explores how families have changed in the last 30 years and speculates about future trends. Critiques approaches used to study relationships and families while suggesting modern approaches for the new millennium. Looks at how changes within the contemporary family have been reflected in family law, family education, and family therapy.  Includes chapters on alternative lifestyles, gay and lesbian relationships, economically distressed families, religion and families, racial and ethnic diversity, a feminist vision for families, older families, and the effect of computers and other technology on family relationships. Marilyn Coleman and Lawrence H. Ganong, eds. Available through SAGE Knowledge.
