Families and Their Social Worlds explores the family through a sociological lens by examining current policies and how those policies impact families. Author Karen Seccombe encourages you to think about families beyond your own personal experiences, and even beyond family structure in the US. Integrated coverage of important policy considerations throughout each chapter illustrates what is currently being done, and perhaps more importantly what can be done, to strengthen families and intimate relationships.
The 4th Edition has been updated with examples that today's students will find relatable, as well as the latest statistics and research findings. Coverage of contemporary social issues includes the #MeToo movement, online dating and economic issues in a post-recession era.
