This book is a great read. The authors all write clearly, and the articles cover a diverse range of topics. It includes extra information such as fact sheets to help give the reader a clear understanding of the concepts. It covers a wide range of family dynamics (interracial families, single-parents, LGBT families, step families, and many more) and the social, institutional, and economic issues that different families must navigate. I usually don't enjoy much non-fiction or many textbooks, but this is honestly an entertaining, inclusive, and informative read.

This book is great, and I wish I could afford to buy it rather than just rent it, now that I read it. I will be returning it in about a week when my term is over. Articles from a variety of authors, very current except that many of the articles were written just before gay marriage was federally legalized last year, so that big change was not mentioned in the articles yet, but future editions will I am sure. Wide variety of topics. I used this book for my Sociology of the Family class at the University of Oregon. It arrived very quickly and was in good condition. I can return the rental for free by printing the label from Amazon, which I love. This process of renting books is GREAT and saves a lot of money.
