Overview

Families Across the Life Course by White, Martin, and Bartolic provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues surrounding marriage and the family. Taking a traditional, life course approach to the topic, it traces the diversity of paths that social relationships can take during their development. The text’s interdisciplinary approach analyses issues not just from a sociological perspective, but also includes research from family studies, economics, political science, and demography.
