Description

This book, the first in the series Social Worlds from the Inside Out, introduces undergraduates to the study of the family (one of the largest courses taken on sociological institutions) through a series of original chapters commissioned for this volume. The book presents the social world of the family "from the inside out" through the lived experiences of its participants, thereby supplementing core texts for this course with multi-faceted descriptions of real-life experiences.show more
