Changes, Choices, and Constraints

Marriages and Families, Census Update, 7e offers students a comprehensive introduction to many issues facing families in the twenty-first century.

The text’s major theme, “Changes, Choices, and Constraints,” explores: contemporary changes in families and their structure, impacts on the choices available to family members, and constraints that often limit our choices. Through this approach, students are better able to understand what the research and statistics mean for themselves.

Marriages and Families, Census Update balances theoretical and empirical discussions with practical examples and applications. It highlights important contemporary changes in society and the family. This text is written from a sociological perspective and incorporates material from other disciplines: history, economics, social work, psychology, law, biology, medicine, family studies, women's studies, and anthropology.

I’m not for sure about this book. I got it for my daughter for her college classes that she sent me a list of books she needs for the up coming semester in the winter for her spring classes. I’m guessing she likes it. She getting good grades in the class and hasn’t said anything to me about any problems with the book.

Product was advertised as used. When recieved, it looked almost brand new. Only was able to tell it was used by the stickers on the back and minor bent corners of the cover.

When discerning the human social condition, I always refer to this text; when conversing with family and friends about the construct of what drives humans to make relationship choices, I refer them to this text. If I have read this text ten years ago I would have not have gotten married. Knowledge is EMPOWERMENT…the information in this text will knock your socks off! From what theories drive human interaction, to learning gender roles and sterotypes, the perpetuators of gender sterotyping. We still choose who to marry by how we look, as opposed to intrinsic factors of humanness. Poverty? this book identifies why we need it and who benefits from it. Women and Children?….the most vulnarable population…is it governmental priority?….not hardly! Global male dominance?…alive,well, and thriving! This text should be required reading on every college prep and university campus.

Decent Textbook

Marriage and family is an interesting topic to learn about. However, this textbook appeared to have some obvious biases on heated topics. Textbooks, especially in the field of sociology, should not put their own biases upon others. Otherwise, it was very informative and a good textbook.
