Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
An incisive, thorough introduction to current theories of the family, this text balances the diversity and richness of a broad scope of scholarly work with the conciseness needed for ease of use in a one-semester course for upper-division undergraduate and beginning graduate students.
Through two editions, this best-selling text has drawn upon seven major theoretical frameworks developed by key social scientists to explain variation in family life. These frameworks include: social exchange and choice, symbolic-interaction, family life course development, systems, conflict, feminist, and ecological. Readers of the Third Edition will welcome the addition of an eighth framework - funcitional theories - along with more suggestions for integrating theory to guide a research program and more applications for those going on to careers in the helping professions.

While reading this text, I got the impression of two Mathematicians translating stereo assembly instructions from Chinese into English and then looking up every word in a thesaurus and replacing it with whatever had the most syllables. Don't get me wrong, I love to read and I have more than a few graduate level courses behind me.
While trying to work from this text, the only thing I could think about was all the horrible things I would like to do to the authors and editor.
My suggestion for the fourth addition would be to tone down the language. You can explain scientific theory in a far more straightforward fashion than how this is written. The authors talk in circles and never truly get to the point of what they are trying to say.
If you HAVE to read this for a class, prepare yourself. It takes a lot of time to get through it.
