FAMILIES IN CONTEXT, by Dr. Gene Starbuck, does a better job of presenting marriage and family concepts in historical, economic, political, religious, cultural, and educational context than any other text available. Emphasizing roles and scripts at many levels (societal, personal, and mutual), this theoretically and ideologically balanced approach provides students with a look at the interconnections between the family and other institutions, as well as a look at contemporary families, couple formation, construction of families, and problems in families--perspectives that help students put their own family experiences into both personal and societal contexts.
