Overview

A sociological approach that prompts students to examine their own beliefs and behavior
Revel™ Marriages and Families: Diversity and Change helps students to see the links between social structure and their own personal experiences of marriages, families, and intimate relationships. Using a sociological and feminist–womanist perspective, authors Mary Ann Schwartz and BarBara Marliene Scott encourage the application of the sociological imagination to everyday life, empowering students to make more informed lifestyle decisions. The Eighth Edition has been updated with new research in the field as well as coverage of contemporary topics that engage students in the course.
