Handbook of Marriage and the Family

▶ Updated edition of a classic text
▶ Comprehensive survey and synthesis of knowledge about families
▶ Designed as a primary graduate text on social science knowledge on
▶ Increased interdisciplinary focus
▶ Chapter authors are noted authorities across a range of disciplines
▶ Focuses on diverse family forms
Despite waves of societal, cultural, and generational change, the family remains the
bedrock unit for studying the individual and society as well as a prime focus of study in
its own right. In particular, where diverse family structures were once considered rare
occurrences, they are now gaining increased recognition from the social sciences. The
Handbook of Marriage and the Family has been updated to reflect the current realities of
family life, synthesizing and critiquing the knowledge base in key areas such as dating,
parenting, sexuality, gender, ethnicity, sibling relationships, divorce, and stepfamilies. This
Third Edition assembles leading experts across the disciplines to cover an expanded range
of topics in qualitative and quantitative methodology, roles and relationships, diversity,
and application issues, among them: Systemic and ecological qualities of families.Division
of household labor.Families with cohabitating parents.Fathers’ nurturance of children
over the life course.Cultural influences on socialization.Family lives of lesbian and gay
adults.Family science as a teaching discipline.
Like its predecessors, this new edition of the Handbook of Marriage and the Family stands
as a comprehensive primary resource for family scientists, sociologists, psychologists, and
social workers who work with families, as well as for researchers, graduate students, and
faculty in family studies, child development, psychology, sociology, social work, public
health, and related fields.

Early Adulthood in a Family Context

Series: National Symposium on Family Issues, Vol. 2
▶ In depth coverage of this critical life period
▶ Covers socioeconomic gender and race issues
▶ Highlights new theoretical, methodological, and measurement
▶ Features high profile contributors
Graduation, full-time employment, independent living, marriage, parenthood—for
decades this has been the idealized trajectory to adulthood. More recently, however,
scholars, practitioners, and young adults themselves are recognizing the disconnect
between long-held cultural scripts and current social and economic realities, as more
young adults are following a wide range of pathways to adulthood.
Early Adulthood in a Family Context provides insight on a contemporary cross-section
of families that are diverse in terms of class, ethnicity, immigrant status, and economic
circumstances. Focusing on family characteristics and dynamics that promote successful
transitions to early adulthood, the book presents new theories, methodologies, and
findings about the familial experiences and behaviors of young adults with their parents,
partners, and offspring. Contributors also warn against oversimplified conclusions by
emphasizing the variety of pathways to adulthood and recommending public policy
supports for young adults. Included in the coverage: Parental support and young adults’
well-being.Young adults in the digital world.Child well-being and the long reach of the
family.Developmental shifts in romantic/sexual relationships from adolescence to young
adulthood.Becoming a parent: social contexts of fertility during young adulthood.Young
adult fertility in the context of economic disadvantage.
Early Adulthood in a Family Context brings current issues into clear perspective
and deserves a wide audience among researchers, faculty, and students of human
development and family studies, family sociology, and demography as well as policy
makers and practitioners.

Gender Roles in Immigrant Families

Series: Advances in Immigrant Family Research
▶ Demonstrates a variety of methodologies
▶ Provides an interdisciplinary perspective
▶ Covers a range of ethnic groups
▶ Contains a comprehensive section on fathering
The immigrant experience stands at a dynamic intersection of transition and change.
Questions regarding acclimation and assimilation are often at the fore, especially when
contrasting cultures confront one another on matters of gender and parenting, and when
parents and children face new expectations of themselves, each other, and their new
Gender Roles in Immigrant Families examines the complex societal, generational, and
individual processes involved in constructing gender, ethnicity, and identity as families
adapt to new cultural surroundings. The experiences of immigrant mothers, fathers,
children, and youth provide readers with insights into coparenting, language brokering,
power and responsibilities in families, and gendered aspects of development. Situations
as varied as Turkish immigrants in Belgium and Mexicans in the U.S. highlight not only
similarities and differences between cultures, but also the continuing flexibility and
fluidity of human behavior. Among the studies featured:
A critical exploration of Chinese fathers in Canada and China.Fathers’ and mothers’
perceptions of their children’s psychosocial behaviors in Mexican immigrant
families.Social support in the lives of Sudanese refugee and Russian immigrant
fathers in Canada.Gendered conceptions of ethnicity: Latino children in middle
childhood.Gender and developmental pathways of acculturation and adaptation in
immigrant adolescents.Past advances and future directions in research and policy.
An in-depth exploration of an often-overlooked area for research, Gender Roles in
Immigrant Families will provide family and developmental psychologists, social workers,
sociologists, and policymakers a greater understanding of gender in the social identity.

LGBT-Parent Families

Innovations in Research and Implications for Practice
▶ First work to offer a comprehensive examination of the field of LGBTparent
▶ Provides an interdisciplinary perspective
▶ Highlights methodological issues
▶ Proposes future research directions
▶ Includes a section on applied issues
“This first-rate handbook provides a comprehensive, astute, and accessible view of LGBT parent
families. With contributions from an interdisciplinary and international group of
leading scholars, this volume covers every contemporary topic concerning LGBT families,
including transgender parenting and LGBTQ youth with LGBTQ parents. Co-editors Drs.
Goldberg and Allen have done an outstanding job in assembling experts to present
overviews of the research and suggest applications for clinical work, policy, and advocacy.
I highly recommend that this book be included in college and post-graduate social science
courses on family life. This manual is essential reading for all clinicians.” – Nanette Gartrell,
MD, Williams Institute Visiting Distinguished Scholar, UCLA School of Law, Principal
Investigator, U.S. National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study
“The appearance of a handbook on LGBT-parent families signals and advances the
mainstreaming of a category of family that just a short time ago was utterly marginal,
subversive, even illegal.”—from the Foreword by Judith Stacey, Ph.D.
Paralleling their gains in legal rights and social acceptance is a rapidly growing knowledge
base concerning sexually diverse families. Emphasizing what we know and what we still
need to know about this maturing field, LGBT-Parent Families covers both major and lessstudied
areas of research, exploring clinical, methodological, policy, and advocacy issues
alongside the contexts in which parents practice their craft and children experience their
world. Inclusiveness beyond sexuality and gender is a crucial dimension of this volume:
issues of race/ethnicity, social class, and geographic diversity are discussed by most of
the contributors, including a chapter devoted to non-Western perspectives. Diverse, too,
are the disciplines represented in the book, from psychology and psychiatry to human
development and legal studies.
