Family Diversity
Continuity and Change in the Contemporary Family

  • Pauline Irit Erera - University of Washington School of Nursing , University of Washington, USA


October 2001 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This nonjudgmental, inclusive, and far-reaching text focuses on the diverse patterns of family structure prevalent in our society today. Family Diversity presents empirical research on the internal dynamics, social environments, support factors, prevalence of discrimination, and common stereotypes that account for the issues surrounding current family relations. By examining the history and nature of foster and adoptive, single-parent, lesbian/gay, step- and grandparent family units, Pauline Irit Erera is able to challenge both the idealized family prototype and the hegemony of the traditional structure. ''
