Building on a wide range of material from Canada, the US, and the UK, this third edition presents engaging new readings on cutting-edge topics. Some of these topics include same-sex marriage and parenting, finances and child-birth, and the "immigrant family". Fox's introductory commentary for each reading has been revised to reflect the current state of the discipline and to establish a present-day context for the material. The result is a succinct and analytical volume that highlights all of the social factors involved in studying the institution of the family. Engaging and relevant, Family Patterns, Gender Relations will spark students' interest and encourage in-depth discussion.
